Toledo, OH (PRWEB) April 01, 2013
Fog can greatly reduce visibility, making it especially troublesome when driving. This was proven just yesterday on a Interstaste 77 near the Virginia-North Carolina border. ABC News reported a 95-vehicle pileup that resulted in three fatalities and several injuries due to heavy fog on the roadway.
USA Today reported that there were three fatalities from the pileup, and twenty-five others were injured. The heavy fog over Interstate 77 is thought to be the root cause of 17 separate crashes within the 95-car pileup. The interstate was then closed for clean-up until early Monday morning.
Attorney Charles Boyk explained, "this multi-vehicle accident is a reminder to drive safely and with caution during foggy conditions. Toledo and the surrounding areas are located close to Lake Erie, making it more likely for us to experience fog. I urge drivers to be patient when driving and remember to be safe and aware of their surroundings so we don't have a similar pileup accident on our local highways."
