Dangerous driving conditions and a section of Interstate 64 that has been under construction led to a massive 63-car pileup in Virginia early Sunday morning. More than 50 injuries were reported, and the road was closed for several hours while vehicles were removed from the scene.
The chain-reaction of crashes, which were blamed on ice and fog, occurred shortly before 8 a.m. on the westbound side, near the Camp Peary exit, but there were also wrecks due to rubbernecking by drivers on the eastbound side.
