Freezing rain caused some spinouts and crashes in the eastern-most parts of our area on Sunday morning, but the Pioneer Valley had nothing on what Central Massachusetts residents dealt with.
At about 7 a.m., the icy conditions caused a crash on Interstate 290 involving 65 cars and three tractor-trailers.
State police told CBS 3 that 35 to 40 people were taken to local hospitals, with two people suffering serious injuries.

Police said it was reopened just before noon.
