Dramatic 47-car pile up in Missouri leaves at least one dead

Snowfall in western Missouri caused a terrifying 47-car pile up that left at least one person dead.

Video from the incident on I-70 near Oak Grove shows dozens of cars and trucks incapable of slowing down on the icy highway, colliding again and again at high speeds. Highway patrol said visibility at the time of the wreckage on Friday was a white-out, KSHB reports.

The man who caught the dramatic scene on video was trapped in his truck with his wife as he filmed the footage. When it was safe, he and others reportedly got out of their cars to help other drivers who were trapped.
