Michigan City, Indiana - Three people have been killed and more than 20 injured after a massive 40+ vehicle pile- up in northern Indiana on Thursday, January 23. Crews have continued to work around the clock to get the wreckage removed, and rescue a few trapped victims.

The accident stretched out over about a mile of Interstate 94, sixty miles south of Chicago. Blizzard like conditions are being reported to have caused the accident, involving a total of 46 vehicles (18 semitrailers, Two box trucks and 26 passenger vehicles).

"A band of heavy lake-effect snow was reported Thursday afternoon when the pileup began, dropping 1 to 2 inches of snow per hour", National Weather Service meteorologist Evan Bentley explained, stating that visibility was virtually zero.

Witnesses reported hearing the crash from up to two miles away. A witness that was closer than that recalled what he saw. "One of the semis started sliding and I think it jackknifed in the middle of the road" and collided with another semi," reported Scott Collins, 17, of Chesterton, Ind. "After that happened, multiple semis locked up".

The results are horrifying.
