    MARKLE, Ind. About 30 cars and 15 trucks were involved in a pile-up during white-out conditions on Interstate 69 about 20 miles southwest of Fort Wayne Thursday afternoon. There were only minor injuries. Slick roads and white-out conditions contributed to the crash, which occurred about 1 p.m. The road was closed between mile markers 78 and 86 near Markle. Lake effect snow sent bands of heavy snow across northern Indiana.

    We have whiteout conditions, and lake effects all the time around here, but 45 car pileups are fairly uncommon, lol

    Most of us just hit the ditch, and are considered the village idiot until the next guy does it :D

    Wow! There's gonna be a few busy claims agents checking all that out.

    BTW, how did you get that tire? I notice its in a shop, so did you get to "take it home?"
