The discovery was made Wednesday morning as heavy snow once again snarled traffic and commutes and – as the driver found out – made city roads very slick.

Police said the driver of the BMW apparently slid at a stoplight and rear-ended a taxi. But the driver got out of the car and ran, and the taxi driver called 911.
