Len, that link you posted is actually a file on a local drive so it won't do any of us any good. Can you give us a link to the story using a "www" address?

edited to add: I just did a search

State Police Release More Details on I-57 Crash Involving Semi, Motor Home, and Car


Good grief. That looks horrible. Sounds as if everybody survived but all in the motorhome were taken to the hospital.

Looking at pics 2 & 3, that sure looks like ICE on the road... especially when you look at the left edge of pic 2. I hope that everyone comes out ok, and will not be emotionally scarred.
