Panicked drivers stuck in snowy pile up make frantic 9-1-1 calls

A massive, snowy pileup of cars Friday in Paw Paw, Michigan stranded many drivers, leaving them frantically calling 9-1-1 for assistance. Furthermore, the traffic pileups happened on I-94 west of Battle Creek and killed one. The scene was chaotic on both sides of the highway, and the crash involved over 193 vehicles, including 22 hospitalizations and one fatality. Many of the drivers were gravely concerned because many of the semi trucks involved in the crash were leaking diesel fuel all over the roadway, which caused one of the trucks to catch fire.

To make matters worse, the truck that caught fire caused another hauling fireworks caused the product to explode, which destroyed many cars. After the scene was further investigated, it was found the crashes were not one large crash, but many little ones pushed together. Although many vehicles were involved in the scene, it is believed that whiteout snow ultimately caused the devastating chain-reaction crash.
