Fiery Crash Involving Nearly 30 Vehicles Leaves 4 Dead

MONTROSE, Ga. (February 6, 2013)--A fourth person died Wednesday in a fiery morning pileup on a foggy Georgia interstate.

The Georgia State Patrol said the victim’s body was found in the wreckage.

Nine others people were taken to a hospital.

All but one were treated and released.

A petroleum tanker truck caught fire in the series of wrecks Wednesday morning near Montrose, Ga., on Interstate 16, a major artery between Savannah and Macon.

Laurens County EMS Director Terry Cobb said at least six vehicles were still on fire when crews arrived.

The state patrol said there were four separate crashes involving 27 vehicles.

Officials said poor visibility likely played a big part.

One forecaster said visibility was less than a quarter-mile in some areas Wednesday morning.
