A pileup involving more than 60 cars on a major interstate in Virginia on Sunday morning injured dozens of people, according to state police. The crash happened just before 8 a.m. Sunday on westbound Interstate 64 in York County near Williamsburg, Virginia State Police Sgt. Michelle Anaya said. No fatalities were reported, but it took crews several hours to clear the roadway and reopen all lanes of traffic.

Authorities do not yet know the cause of the crash, but fog and icy road conditions were contributing factors, Anaya said. Photos from the scene showed a tangled mass of metal, with car hoods crumpled, windows smashed and a red truck plopped on top of another vehicle.

Ivan Levy said he and his wife were both headed to Williamsburg, where they work, in separate vehicles around the time of the crash. Levy told The Associated Press he started slowing his truck down and turned his hazard lights on when he saw thick fog. “Next thing I know I see cars just start piling up on top of each other,” he said.
