While many folks were traveling for today's Easter holiday, unfortunately some drivers perished in an unfortunate accident on Virginia's Interstate 77 highway.
According to reports, the 95 vehicle pile up involved autos of all sorts and was due to heavy fog banks that were ignored by drivers. People on the scene said vehicles had ignored the various warnings and sped through. The problem is that the fog is so sudden and so thick in this area of Virginia you lose sight quickly and soon thereafter you find yourself in another vehicle.
Our thoughts are with all of the parties involved, particularly the victims and their families.
Be safe out there, Spies!
