WOODLAND- I multiple vehicle accident on I-80 near the Woodland exit involved at least 50 vehicles, most of them tractor trailers. The crash was caused by sudden freezing rain that covered the roads in ice almost instantly. Drivers were unable to stop and slammed into each along Interstate 80 westbound between the Kylertown and Woodland exits

Sixteen people were transported to Clearfield Hospital for treatment of moderate to minor injuries. One person was transported to a trauma center at another area hospital with serious injuries. PennDot had detours in place all day until they could open one lane. There was still a lane restriction in that area of I-80 until just before 1 am last night.
