100 Cars Pile Up In Interstate 5 Fog
At least 100 cars piled up in the fog in a series of chain-reaction crashes on a major freeway Saturday, leaving one person dead and an undetermined number of people injured.
“There’s zero visibility due to the fog,” said a California Highway Patrol dispatcher, Scott Marotte.
The chain reaction began on Interstate 5 when cars stopped to help the occupants of a vehicle that had careened off the road and rolled, Marotte said.
In a separate crash, 30 to 50 cars smashed into each other on Interstate 805, but details were sketchy.
