Dozens of cars and trucks piled up and burned Monday in a chain-reaction collision on a downtown freeway bridge in fog so thick it cut visibility to zero. Three people were killed, authorities said.
"It was just horrible, terrible. To hear the brakes squeal, the gas tanks explode, to hear the people screaming," said Harry Suppanz, 35, of Sturgeon Bay, a passenger in a truck that crashed and burned.
At least 30 injured were taken to hospitals.
Police Lt. Roy Johnson described the situation as "total chaos" after the crash on the northbound lanes of the Interstate 43 bridge over the Fox River.
