The Pennsylvania turnpike was blocked for hours on Dec. 26, 2013, as a 35-car pileup made traveling impossible. Yahoo News said that parts of Interstate 78 were shut down in snowy eastern Pennsylvania once cars started slipping on the icy roads and causing chain-reaction pileups.
Police have said that somehow, some way, no-one was killed in the major accident on the Pennsylvania turnpike. One person was flown to a nearby hospital by helicopter, but there were no other reports of serious injuries, but about 10 people were treated at hospitals.
The accident was said to have happened around 8:45 a.m. on Thursday morning.
Pennsylvania turnpike officials have said that 35 cars total were involved in the pileup stemming from related accidents. The four-mile backup happened about 50 miles west of Philadelphia, between the Morgantown and Reading exits in Berks County.
That wasn't the only big accident on Thursday though.
State police said that about 40 vehicles piled up in multiple accidents on Thursday morning on I-78 and shut down close to five miles of the westbound lanes in Berks County.
