VIRGINIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Three people are dead and 25 others are recovering from injuries Monday morning after a 95-car pileup in Virginia.
Police are now saying that there were 17 separate crashes along the foggy interstate.
The wrecks occurred on Interstate 77 in southwest Virginia in the Gap Mountain area.
Officials say message boards along the interstate warned drivers of severe fog in the area.
They say most of the crashes were because drivers were going too fast for conditions.
The wrecks had traffic backed up for nearly eight miles.
