Three dead in 20-car accident in Indiana
MICHIGAN CITY, IN - Crews are continuing work to remove wreckage from a deadly pileup in northwestern Indiana involving more than 40 vehicles on a main highway between Chicago and Detroit.
State police say three people died Thursday and more than 20 were injured in the crash on a snowy stretch of eastbound Interstate 94 near Michigan City, about 60 miles east of Chicago. Cpl. Daniel Becker says the eastbound lanes remained closed Friday morning and that it could be several more hours before the numerous semitrailers and other vehicles would be cleared. Police say snow and whiteout conditions contributed to the pileup. T
he National Weather Service says lake-effect snow brought 1 to 2 inches an hour at the time of the afternoon wreck and reduced visibility to a quarter-mile or less.
