Oh, how horrible. Wonder what the cause was? I've seen some bad ones through the years on the Fla highways but this amount of cars involved, never! Prayers going out to those suffering.

I believe it was a brush fire, the smoke cause the visibility to be 0.

Lakeland is 20 or so miles from where my dad lives. We went through Lakeland to get to I-4 to go to Orlando while we were in FL on vacation.

What a terrible thing to happen!

Saw this on the news this AM and it was terrible! 70 cars involved at that time, 4 deaths. They interviewed an officer who was at another accident about a mile up the highway and he said they could hear the repeated sounds of vehicles hitting each other and screams. He and his fellow officer followed the sounds back and he said it was true zero visibility - like can't see my hand in front of my face visibility. I can't imagine how terrifying it must have felt for those who were in the cars involved here, not knowing where to go to find safety.

News reports also said the visability problems were result of controlled burns?

Now the forestry division is saying there is no way smoke from the burn was a contributing factor,even though most everyone involved in the wreck said it was!
What a suprise.
