Semi truck (unsuccessfully) takes on icy hill in viral video

Video of a truck driver struggling up and then sliding back down an icy hill in Longview, Texas, earlier today has gone viral.

After watching a car just barely make it up the icy hill on Hawkins Parkway, the truck driver decides to give it a go. He makes it almost all the way to the top of the hill before sliding all the way back down the hill and colliding with a traffic light.
