On Sunday, citing local police sources, the Associated Press reported that about 75 vehicles collided on a highway in the eastern USA, killing at least three people, and injuring more than 20. The accident occurred in south-western Virginia, near the North Carolina border, around 13.15 EDT (10.15 PDT. 18.15 UTC. 21.15 MSK. 04.15 1 April AEST). Police say that the accident snarled up traffic on the highway for over 13 kilometres (8 miles). Several cars caught fire, but firemen rapidly extinguished the flames. Presumably, the accident was due to severe weather conditions… there was thick fog in the area of the accident. RIA-Novosti reported that emergency crews are on the scene.
