According to NBC News, at least 35 people were injured in the Sunday morning accident when the wreck with 63 vehicles cut off traffic on Interstate 64.

Authorities Currently, it is still being investigated what led to the accident. However, state police say there was fog and ice on Queens Creek Bridge when the accident occurred at around 7:51 a.m.

The injuries sustained in the accident range from minor to life-threatening. No deaths were reported. A spokesman for the Riverside Regional Medical Center reported that 25 of the injured were treated, one who was in serious condition.
