    Two crashes between the Roger Stevens and Bankfield exits involved a
    total of 72 vehicles. Six people were taken to hospital with minor
    injuries and four people were treated on the scene by paramedics. The
    fog and icy road conditions are being blamed.

    That was one crazy pileup. Or 2 crazy pileups. There are a bunch of pictures in the Sun of it. I think in all those cars involved, only one landed on their roof which is stunning.

    There was also a similar accident in Connecticut on the weekend.

    46 people got injured in that one.
