Snow causes deadly pileup in Michigan

(WDIV) A deadly pileup was reportedly caused by snow on Thursday in Livingston County, Michigan, after whiteout conditions seemingly sprouted out of nowhere.

Three people were killed in the accident which took place shortly before 10 a.m., and more than 40 cars were involved.

“I had trucks passing me at like 55-60 miles-an-hour and, I mean, you just couldn’t see, it was just kicking up that bad,” said motorist Michael Carney who drove through the crash zone.

Eastbound lanes of I-96 where the crash took place re-opened in the mid-afternoon, but westbound lanes were expected to remain closed until later Thursday evening.
