11 injured in chain of accidents on Missouri highway 44

11 injured in chain of accidents on Missouri highway 44

Police say a tractor-trailer crashed into the rear of a Greyhound bus in snowy weather on Interstate 44 in Missouri, setting off a chain of accidents involving dozens of vehicles. At least 11 people were sent to a hospital with minor to moderate injuries.

Sgt. Cody Fulkerson, a spokesman for the Missouri State Police, says no one was killed when between 25 and 35 vehicles crashed into each other Saturday. Police closed the westbound interstate near Rolla, Missouri. A hazardous materials team was cleaning up a small leak of a flammable liquid from a tractor-trailer.

Fulkerson says police have been working on well over 100 accidents because of the weather. Earlier in the day, two people were killed in a multiple vehicle crash further south in Laclede County.
