MSNBC: Scores Of Vehicles Snared In Ohio Highway Pileups
Blowing snow and slick roadways in various parts of the state on Monday set off multiple highway pileups, including one outside Cincinnati involving at least 86 vehicles that left a 12-year-old girl dead.
The crash on Interstate 275 near the Cincinnati suburb of Colerain Township was one of at least four pileups that snared dozens of vehicles. Officers were called to the scene shortly after 11:30 a.m. and discovered multiple chain-reaction collisions.
The whole thing resulted from at most a half-inch of snow. It was the intensity with which the snow fell that caused the crashes. I was nearby, but luckily wasn't involved.
