NEW ORLEANS - New photos show intense "super fog" on I-10 around the same time as a series of crashes that killed a person and sent several others to a hospital.  

The pictures, shared with WWL-TV, show rapidly decreasing visibility on the interstate in Orleans Parish. According to the person who submitted the photos, the fog intensified in a matter of minutes, making it near impossible to see objects just feet away.

Officials reported one person was killed and at least eight others were hurt. 

It's the second time in recent weeks that the so-called "super fog," a confluence of fog and smoke from nearby wildfires, caused a deadly crash on a major highway in southeast Louisiana.
