Around 10:18 am, it’s reported that WHP troopers stopped to check on a commercial truck that had stopped in the roadway.  As the trooper was speaking with this driver, another vehicle ran into the back of the stopped commercial truck. 

“This created several other drivers to lose control of their vehicles and crash,” the Highway Patrol release said. “At the time of the crash, there was dense fog and slick roads.”

The interstate remains closed while troopers continue to investigate the crash.
