YREKA, Calif. (WTVR) – California Highway Patrol blamed ice on the road for a 60-vehicle pileup, reported Fox40.com. The accidents closed a section of Interstate 5 in Northern California.

“At this time we’re not certain whether or not a small snowstorm or hail storm precipitated this ice formation or it was just the below freezing temperatures in the air,” Yreka Police Public Information Officer Nick  Black said.
