Photos show deadly 66-car pile-up in PA during snowstorm

Shocking photos show what happened when a dozen tractor-trailers skidded out of control on snow-covered Interstate 80 in Pennsylvania during Wednesday night’s winter storm — killing one person

The 66-vehicle pileup, including 55 trucks and 11 passenger vehicles, over a mile span on the westbound side of the highway happened around 3 p.m. Wednesday in Clinton County, State Police said Thursday.

The stretch remained closed Thursday afternoon with contractors trying to clear the vehicles, according to cops.

A second passenger died during the incident due to a medical issue, but it was not connected to the crash, cops said.

The fatality was one of five lives claimed during Winter Storm Gail, the first snowstorm of the season — which dumped more snow on New York City than all of last year combined.

Another death was reported just outside Pittsburgh when a man was hit by a plow around 4:45 p.m. while walking with a snowblower, according to the local CBS station.
