    RAW VIDEO: Fog, Ice Contribute to Massive Pileup in Tennessee

    Widespread dense fog and ice could be to blame for a massive 45-car pileup outside of Nashville Thursday morning.

    The 45-car pileup happened northeast of Nashville in the suburb of Hendersonville on the Vietnam Veterans Boulevard around 7:30 a.m. local time.

    The accident occurred in the eastbound lanes of the parkway which reportedly was covered in dense fog and icy patches.

    Multiple injuries were reported and at least one person was killed. Two school buses were involved in the wreck according to WRCB-TV, but no children were hurt.

    Widespread dense fog formed throughout the Tennessee Valley this morning.

    Observations at nearby Nashville Metropolitan Airport showed visibilities between 1/16 of a mile and zero from 6:49 a.m. to 9 a.m. eastern time.

    Temperatures during this time frame were in the upper 20s throughout middle Tennessee which led to reports of freezing fog and icy spots on area roadways.
