I-80 in PA open again after horrible weekend pile-up
A 10-mile stretch of Interstate 80 in Western Pennsylvania was closed for hours Saturday after a series of crashes involving at least 20 vehicles left three people dead. Venango County 911 supervisor Mary Beth White said the chain-reaction crashes began in the snow about 2:20 p.m. Vehicles either crashed into one another or into a median strip. White said there are three confirmed fatalities. The same snowy weather prompted a 30-vehicle crash on Interstate 79 in western Pennsylvania, but no serious injuries or fatalities were reported.
