It certainly does, but I'm thankful because the damages were very minor and no one was hit or hurt.

I agree black ice can be dangerous. Glad you're okay man!

It is a ground wire. Looks like it is for the exhaust. Probably wont cause any problems, but might be a ground for the o2 senors. I took them off my truck when I put on a set of headers.

Looks like a braided ground wire. It may be your chassis ground, check to make sure you still have it. It may not hurt anything to be disconnected, but it will help the electronics to have it connected.
