Quick Snow Causes Numerous Wrecks on I-176

A quick burst of snow created quite a mess of problems on the roads in Berks County. Emergency dispatchers reported numerous accidents on Interstate 176 south of Reading, between Cumru and Caernarvon townships, this afternoon. Fire police shut down the southbound lanes of the highway for a couple hours. That allowed for paramedics to tend to numerous victims, crews to remove the wrecked vehicles, and PennDOT to treat the highway. At least one car rolled onto its roof. Another rolled onto its side. At least two victims were taken to the hospital.
