Car pile ups don't have to happen. If you drive safely and pay attention to the road, you can avoid them altogether.

"F" ing retards. Keep building ELF antennas along every "FREEWAY" in the USA and see how well zombies can react to an atypical situation.

  


.. .sorry to inform you, but "FREEWAYS" are West Coast, on the East Coast road ways are mostly called "HIGHWAYS" or less common "MOTORWAYS" ;, but never ever "FREEWAYS" ...

There’s no word on exactly what caused the pile-ups, but local news station Fox 29 said the first accident took place around 7:40 a.m. and involved a tractor trailer.
So Human error and an incredible ineptness when confronted with ice and snow, caused the crashes.

  

I live north of there, it is close to NYC also...the PTC had just lifted speed restrictions without fully examining road conditions, a combination of morning sunglare on the white snow and black ice on the asphalt, with the way the PA Turnpike curves and slopes there are the reasons it happened.

the US government kills people, not the people of the US.

I don't feel sorry for the Americans. They have killed millions around the world.

Sure thats all we need is MORE military! Wake up!

Well this should help keep someone in a job especially the auto industry glad no one got killed.

A perfect example of applying the wrong perspective to situations.

Saying that! America is being hit hard by this weather and I for one feel for them.

Seems the whole world is suffering from the weather and other extreme events these days.

Might not be a bad idea to have a few military helicopters on stand by, then if there is a blockage the worst offenders can simply be air lifted out.

These kinds of situations could easily become death traps!

Wasn't it Boris Badenov who stole the tunnels from the Pennsylvania Turnpike?

RT is hoping for doomsday in the US. But it won't happen. We are sure that average road accidents in Russia are far worse than the average in the US, knwing how poor the roads are in Russia.

It may be a very good idea if know it all Yankees check their brains before running at the mouth the next time they want to disparage Southern drivers. What a show of great northern driving!! Haha.

Bet that incident report was a flipping nightmare

This news is obviously fake and the images are most likely photoshoped. We are in global warming.
