(Reuters) - Three people were killed on Wednesday in a 20-vehicle pile-up on a foggy interstate highway in Georgia that links Atlanta and Savannah, according to local media reports.
The crash, involving a tanker truck, shut down I-16 in both directions in Laurens County, the Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper reported, citing the state transportation department.
The paper also said the Georgia Department of Public Safety had confirmed three fatalities. There was no word on the number of injuries.
The Department of Transportation website said I-16 could be closed until Wednesday afternoon.
