Parts of the Northeast were flooded with rain and ice, causing dangerous accidents on Sunday.
In Philadelphia, WPVI says a crash along Interstate 76 ended with a massive pileup involving around 56 vehicles. One man died after he got out of his car and was struck by another. Police say more than 30 others were injured.
And two other men died when a tractor trailer jackknifed on I-476 on the outskirts of Philadelphia. WCAU says the men died because they were unable to stop their cars from crashing head-on into the trailer.
