Whiteout causes 24-vehicle pileup

January 29, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Whiteout conditions on Interstate 69 caused an accident involving 20 cars and four trucks and prompted authorities to close a five-mile stretch of the road for hours, police said. There were no fatalities, but numerous injuries in the crashes about 50 miles north of Detroit.

As much as 10 inches of snow was forecast in Michigan's Thumb region, and as much as 2 feet just north of the Indiana state line, the National Weather Service said.
