There was a major stack in York County, Virginia, on Interstate 64, which left dozens injured in what appears to be a chain reaction accident.
According to NBC News, the accident, which took place on Sunday morning, left at least 35 injured while the wreckage of 63 vehicles blocked traffic on Interstate 64.
Authorities are still investigating the reasons for the accident, but state police said there was fog and ice on the Queens Creek Bridge when the accident occurred at around 7:51 a.m.
The injuries sustained during the accident range from minor to fatal. No deaths have been reported. A spokesperson for the Riverside Regional Medical Center said he was treating 25 of the injured, including one in serious condition.
The two lanes were closed before authorities could open the eastbound lanes early Sunday morning. People were encouraged to avoid the highway.
As many of you know, this is the holiday season, so many people travel on the highway in their vehicles. Roommates, make sure you travel safe.
