Freezing rain causes chaos on Georgia interstate

Inclement weather in the American south has caused chaos on the highways. A spate of freezing rain in northern Alabama and north-west Georgia left ice on Interstate 75 – causing a mammoth 35-car pileup.

Fifteen people were injured in the incident, and the carriageway has been closed in order to investigate – with northbound lanes blocked off as far as 115 miles south of the incident.
