Snowy car pileup causes 100 injuries

About 100 people suffered minor to moderate injuries in a multi-vehicle crash Thursday south of Edmonton, Canada, Alberta Health Services said on its Twitter feed.

According to official road reports, a snowstorm has made the roadways extremely dangerous. The snowy conditions and smoke from multiple crashes caused by those conditions have resulted in delays of six hours or more, reports say. Snow plow trucks have been pulled off of the roadway because of poor visibility.

Alberta Health Services, Alberta's provincial health authority, lowered its initial estimate of 300 injuries in the pileup in Leduc, south of Edmonton. Most of the injuries were minor, it said, with six considered moderate and one serious.
