Fog along Interstate 5 near Sacramento, CA, Dec. 15 lead
to a series of pileups that involved more than 24 vehicles, media outlets
The largest of the wrecks involved
six tractor-trailers and nine cars.
Centered on a bridge that
officials say is known for heavy fog, the large wreck led to several smaller
collisions. The series of incidents occurred about 9 a.m. Dec. 15 just north of
the Sacramento River bridge, and closed the highway in both directions while
officials investigated and started to clean up.
Southbound I-5 did not open again
until that afternoon. No one was seriously injured or killed in the incident.
