In a scene that could come out of a movie, a collision involving a tractor trailer carrying stones and gravel caused the stones to hit multiple cars going southbound on I-270 between Middlebrook Rd. and Montgomery Village Ave. around 5:30AM.
Approximately two dozen people were injured when cars couldn’t avoid the falling stones. Over 20 vehicles were involved.
EMS declared this an MCI (mass casualty incident). MCFRS PIO, Pete Piringer, tweeted that people were transported to the hospital and that some were trauma patients.
