HAZELWOOD, Mo. (KSDK) - While yesterday's road conditions were a nightmare for drivers, they're a dream come true for some local businesses.

Body shops are filling up with cars and trucks that were involved in accidents on the snowy roads.

At Complete Auto Body and Truck Repair in Hazelwood crews are working ten-hour shifts to keep up with the rush.

Owner Bob Barks says his shop has already received dozens of vehicles, but it's nothing compared to what he expects to roll in next week.

"After Monday when the cars are starting to be released from the tow companies and insurance adjusters and people actually handling the claims, we'll be flooded. We'll be booked up for weeks and weeks. It happens every storm," said Barks.

Barks also owns a towing company and says yesterday was the busiest day he's seen in years.
