LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police in northern Indiana have finally finished clearing the road after a massive pileup Thursday that killed three people and injured more than 20 others.
Officials say heavy snow and whiteout conditions caused more than 40 cars and 14 semis to pile up on I-94.
It happened Jan. 23 on a busy stretch of the interstate between Chicago and Detroit. Video of the scene revealed that some vehicles were mangled in the mess.
State Trooper Dave Andrews says the highway reopened to traffic Friday morning, nearly 20 hours after the chain-reaction crash started.
Indiana State Police say one person was still trapped in a vehicle hours after the crash happened. Witnesses say they just didn't see it coming.
"As soon as we seen the brake lights, it was already too late," one witness said. "So we looked back, told everybody, 'Brace yourself for impact.' We crashed into the back of a semi. The bumper of the semi fell off and pierced the door."
Cranes and wreckers were brought in to remove the wreckage that included several semitrailers.
