POTTSVILLE, Pa. - Video captured the scene of a massive pileup on Monday along a Pennsylvania highway during a snow squall, killing at least three people and injuring more than a dozen others.An estimated 40 to 60 vehicles, including a number of tractor-trailers, were involved in the crash around 10:30 a.m.
on Interstate 81 in the northeastern part of the state, officials said. A video filmed by Mike Moye captured the chaos and showed cars and semi-trucks crashing in white-out conditions near the Minersville exit, a town located about 100 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
Moye’s video shows at least one vehicle on fire and several passengers lining the snowy road and jumping out of the way as a cascade of crashes unfolded."This is ridiculous," Moye can be heard saying, adding later: "I need to get the f--- off the road.
This is crazy!" A screengrab from video shows the deadly pileup along Interstate 81 on March 28, 2022, near Minersville, Pennsylvania.
