Sunday, a severe weather storm moved through areas of Pennsylvania causing accidents, death, and leaving hundreds of people stranded; a 50-car pile-up on the Pennsylvania turnpike left one dead and hundreds of people stranded on the turnpike for over four hours Sunday afternoon, according to ABC News.
It took snow plow trucks and tow trucks several hours to clear to the turnpike so that cars could move through the area again. Many of the people who were stranded didn't know what was going in and felt abandoned on the turnpike; many took videos and posted them to YouTube.
One person near Morgantown, PA got out of their car during the pileup and was hit and killed by another car; that accident occurred around 12:30 p.m. Because of low temperatures, black ice was seen around the state and deceived drivers which caused the accidents. Much of the East Coast was hit by the storm which stretched as far west as Minnesota.

Monday, some school closings are expected around the state.
