An early morning car crash on I-4 in Polk County involved more 50 vehicles and at this point, an undetermined number of crash fatalities. The crash occurred as a result of heavy fog combined with a controlled burn that got out of control. The hazardous combination of fog and smoke from the fire reduced visibility to zero. I wonder why Interstate 4 wasn’t closed down prior to the crash. Authorities knew about the controlled burn and should have been aware of the potential for fog. Perhaps, if the highway had been closed, this tragedy could have been avoided.
