About 30 vehicles involved in pileup on icy Montana bridge

Dozens of vehicles crashed into each other on an icy interstate highway bridge over the Yellowstone River outside Billings, Montana, making the span appear like a wrecking yard with mashed cars and trucks

BILLINGS. Mont. — Dozens of vehicles crashed into each other Saturday on an icy interstate highway bridge over the Yellowstone River outside Billings, Montana, making the span appear like a wrecking yard with mashed cars and trucks.

First responders found the two injured people under the bridge, the Billings Gazette reported.

A Billings city bus was sent to the scene to move to an events center several travelers whose vehicles were wrecked or were pinned by other crashed vehicles.

“It was like bumper cars,” Bella Contreraz told the newspaper. She said she slammed on her brakes when she saw vehicles stopped ahead of her. An oncoming semi truck struck her vehicle, pinning it to the side of the bridge. Another driver, she said, helped her escape by prying open her door.

Billings streets were tied up with traffic as drivers sought alternate routes.
