TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tim Holcomb runs Tupelo Auto Body and Collision Repair.

Holcomb said he sees an increase of cars with damage coming in after winter weather.

He said a big problem is that Mississippians are simply not prepared to drive in icy conditions.

Holcomb said the biggest factors are speeding too fast and braking too hard.

On average, Holcomb said it costs about $600 to $10,000 depending on the extent of the damage.
