A deadly “flash freeze” swept through much of the Northeast on Sunday, causing crashes that killed at least four people and forcing flight delays and closure of all bridges linking Philadelphia and New Jersey.
New Jersey reported over 400 accidents on the roadways. Massive pileups were reported on various interstate highways, with several major thoroughfares closed down for hours. Rain began falling Sunday morning, and caused an immediate layer of invisible ice.
