A man did not survive his crash on what police suspect was a patch of black ice.

It happened around 4:45 a.m.

Police in Moorestown, New Jersey say that Centerton-Moorestown Road was slippery at the time of the crash.

Police say that at the time of the crash, much of the road where the accident happened was covered with a thin sheet of almost invisible ice.

The driver, a 48-year-old man from Riverside, was killed. His name has not yet been released.

Traffic was backed up around the accident scene.

Even some police officers had trouble navigating local roads.

Two Philadelphia police officers are in the hospital after their cruiser hit a patch of black ice and slammed into a utility pole.

The crash happened about 2:15 a.m. Wednesday near 56th and Vine in West Philadelphia.

The officers were responding to a call when they hit the patch of ice.

They both suffered head injuries, but are in stable condition at the hospital.
