MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Across the Mid-South, drivers found themselves getting stuck in the ice, snow, or sludge on Thursday.

Residents and police officers could be seen helping drivers get out of the mess.

Thursday morning, an ambulance carrying a patient became stuck in the snow on Thomas Street in Frayser. WMC Action News 5 was there as first responders carried the patient from one ambulance to the next.

It was the second report of an ambulance being stuck on Thursday.

"It's awful. Tennessee needs to be better equipped for weather like this," said Eileen Butler.
