Near blizzard conditions from a snow squall caused a 60-car pileup on an interstate highway in northeastern Pennsylvania, killing a woman and injuring 18 others, authorities said. The snow led to the mid-afternoon pileup on Interstate 81 near Hazleton. Northbound lanes of the interstate were shut down and motorists were being detoured.

Eighteen people were taken to Hazleton General Hospital, where most were being treated for minor injuries. Nursing supervisor Monica Link said she does not know whether any will be admitted.
