40 Car Pile-Up on I-10 at Michoud, New Orleans Claims the Lives of two and injures 50

New Orleans 40 car pile-up claims the lives of two, sent 22 to the hospital and injured at least 37 others. The visibility or extreme poor visibility proved to be too much for vehicles entering I-10 at Michoud in New Orleans. The accident happened around 4:00am on the Michoud, New Orleans East ramp.

Wesley Ratcliff, the first tow truck driver that showed up to try to untangle the massive sea of cars and trucks stated that he couldn’t see 10 feet ahead and that the drivers had no way of preventing the chain-reaction collision that resulted, due to extreme poor visibility and he went on to say that this accident scene was the worst he had encountered in his 13 year career as a tow truck and his sympathy went out to the deceased families and the injured.
