Three people were killed after slippery roads caused a massive pileup involving 30 to 40 cars on Interstate 96 in Michigan Thursday morning.

“Bands of lake-effect snow are streaming through the Great Lakes region as arctic air flows over the relatively warmer lake waters,” said meteorologist Chris Dolce. “Those snow squalls can lead to visibility that deteriorates quickly, along with slick roads.”
