Florida pileup claims 11 lives

A massive car pileup in Florida over the weekend has claimed 11 lives and sent 18 people to the hospital.

An estimated 12 cars, six tractor-trailers, and a motor home collided on Interstate 75 in Gainesville, Florida early Sunday morning, less than a quarter of an hour after Florida Highway Patrol reopened the stretch of highway. Dense fog and heavy smoke from brush fires made visibility dangerously low.

Witnesses say they saw cars getting hit multiple times and bursting into flames. Several cars were wedged under tractor-trailers. Investigators are seeking the help of anthropologists from the University of Florida to help identify the deceased.

Our thoughts are with the families and friends of those affected by this horrific crash.
