The most severe of the accidents happened in the eastbound lanes of the Turnpike between mile markers 101 and 102. There, the patrol says 55 vehicles collided, resulting in 36 injuries and three deaths. Trooper Andrew Clouser was hit and seriously hurt in that crash.

The patrol says the accidents happened during a period of severe snow blowing and drifting, which seriously limited visibility.
