WATCH: Horrifying video of I-35 pile-up

I-35 60-Vehicle Pileup Accident

The Iowa DOT has released video from a car crash near Ames that involved 50-70 cars and killed one person. 

My son was planning to drive from Ames to Des Moines on Monday.  I texted him to stay home and I am glad that I did.

It looks like lack of visibility played a big role -  remember how the snow was heavy AND blowing.  It appears that cars approaching the accident don't see it until it is too late...hit their brakes...and lose control.
