    If you people would learn to slow down in such bad weather instead of being in a rush to go nowhere and driving like crazy people maybe less people would have died

      I so agree. People need to start taking the weather and it's effects on the road more serious

      antonio am sorry to hear your sister was in that crash and truly hope she is fine,BUT indeed speed has everything to do with it.If going slow enough and staying enough car lengths behind other cars will make a BIG difference. Even if it's hard to come to a stop on slippery roads if going slow enough the running into another car will not be as bad of a accident. Just saying

    "Eastbound I-94 is shutdown in northwest Indiana after a massive pile-up involving semi trucks." I gather from their unbiased reporting there were no cars involved?

    To settle some disagreements a semi-truck started the accident even if the semi was going slow it still would of slide and once u start sliding u down stop especially a few ton semi
