At least 30 vehicles — including about a dozen semitrailers — crashed on an icy patch of Interstate 94 highway running through Indiana, leaving three dead and more than 20 injured.

The pileup occurred Thursday afternoon and initially left two dead. Police say the wreck involved 15 semitrailer rigs and 15 passenger vehicles and pickup trucks, The Associated Press reported. One injured person was trapped in the cold for hours, Indiana State Police reported.

LaPorte County Coroner John Sullivan told the AP hours after the crash that responders were “still trying to get to all the vehicles” and were working feverishly to extricate all the individuals.

The accident took place about 60 miles from Chicago, in the midst of snowy conditions.
