Chilling, Snowy Video Catches Ongoing Smash-ups on I-94 Near Kalamazoo
A jarring cell phone video has emerged showing vehicle after vehicle crashing into a semi stalled on the I-94 near Kalamazoo, Mich. One of the semis involved was transporting hazardous materials, and another was carrying fireworks, causing a fire. It is unreal watching the ongoing accidents take place every couple of seconds, until the horrific crashes finally disturb the videographer so much he rushes over to help.
According to My Fox Detroit,
It shows the chaos – the clashing of mangled metal – as crash after crash unfolds.
First a warning, what you’re about to see is both distressing and disturbing. Explicit language toward the end of the video.
A traumatic and horrific scene – on I-94 – near Kalamazoo captured by a bystander and shared to YouTube.
A Canadian trucker was killed – and at least twenty three others were hurt in the fiery pile up.
The chain reaction crash blamed on snow, wind and low visibility.
The freeway was shut down after 123 cars ended up in the pile-up. It goes to show that even if you are prepared for the snow, with tire chains or snow tires, if someone else is stalled on the road in front of you, you could still end up in an accident if you are driving too fast for the snowy conditions. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the trucker who lost his life, and also to those injured. Watch the graphic video below.
