58 Car Pile Up

Yesterday my husband who is a fireman, and I were getting ready to go set up at my parents house for our toddlers birthday party when this happened.....

http://www.echohosefd.com/index.php/component/content/article/42-latest-news/437-58-car-pileup-rollover-crashes

Just take a look at all the cars...
The rain started to fall, and the roads were so cold, it was turning into ice on contact....

People are idiots and continued to speed on a dangerous section of road in our town, and this is the result of it.... Biggest "car accident" in the history of my husbands fire department..

Remember.... 4 wheel drive doesn't mean 4 wheel stop... it means 4 wheel SLIDE into other cars.

Amazingly... there were NO major injuries at all.... less than 30 people were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

I am not sure but I didn't even think of that. It is SUCH a mess!  I really dont think there will be a way to tell whos fault it really was. I think they will just chock it up to weather conditions.

Wow people really should slow down in weather like that. They should also remember that being a few minutes late is better than never making it at all.
