 Monday, December 2, 2019


A car crash on the I-68 caused more than 25 cars to pile up on Sunday, Maryland State Police confirmed. MSP confirmed that the cause behind the crash was due to fog and limited visibility.

Initial reports from traffic officials estimated 25-40 cars involved in the pileup, but MSP later confirmed that 58 cars were involved in 29 separate collisions.

The crashes backed up traffic for 5-6 to miles. According to authorities, the first crash happened around mile marker 29 near Frostburg, and left westbound lanes blocked off.

Police are still investigating to see if there were additional reasons behind the initial collision beyond low visibility and fog.

Authorities said that 10 people were taken to the Western Maryland Health System in Cumberland, Maryland but all sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
