Virginia State Police say the final tally on Sunday morning’s chain-reaction crash along Interstate 64 outside Williamsburg included 69 vehicles, leaving 51 injured.
Of those injuries, 11 were considered serious, state police said.
Heavy fog and ice on a bridge sparked the wreck, which began at 7:51 a.m. at mile marker 238 near Camp Peary.
