Fog Causes I-70 Pileup

The State Highway Patrol says as many as 20 vehicles crashed early this morning in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 70 near the Route 41 exit east of Springfield.

A dispatcher says some injuries are reported, but she did not know how serious they are. The patrol says dense fog caused the crashes near the exit to a large area flea market where traffic had backed up.
