CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — Police say heavy fog may have helped cause a nearly 60-car pileup that snarled holiday traffic on an interstate highway in western Maryland.

Maryland State Police say there were 58 vehicles involved in 29 separate collisions Sunday on westbound Interstate 68.

Police say 10 people were taken to a local hospital with injuries, none of them life-threatening.
