A pileup involving more than 60 cars on a major interstate in Virginia on Sunday, December 23, injured dozens of people, some critically, according to state police.

The accident happened Sunday morning on Interstate 64 in York County and for a time shut down traffic in both directions, Virginia State Police Sgt. Michelle Anaya said in a statement.

State police tweeted that there was fog and ice along a bridge when what was described as a chain-reaction wreck began.

More than 104 million Americans are expected to travel by car this holiday season, causing traffic jams and congestion on the roads, according to analytic company INRIX. (AP)
