4 killed in chain-collision crash in Ga.
MONTROSE, Ga. -- More than two dozen cars, pickup trucks and tractor-trailers collided Wednesday morning in a fiery pileup on a foggy Georgia interstate, killing at least four people and sending nine others to a hospital, officials said.
Work crews on Interstate 16 were still clearing charred and twisted wreckage from the crash scene, which covered nearly a quarter-mile of the roadway, hours after the chain of crashes occurred at about 8:10 a.m.
Crews initially reported three deaths before finding another person dead in the wreckage later Wednesday.
The Georgia State Patrol was still trying to piece together what started the series of wrecks involving 27 vehicles.
