FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – Dozens of people were taken to hospitals after a massive car crash on an icy Texas interstate. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that about 30 people were transported early Thursday after the wreck on Interstate 35. The icy weather is part of a larger storm system. Ice storm warnings are in effect from Arkansas to Kentucky. Meanwhile, another winter storm is predicted to bring snow to Mid-Atlantic states. More than 125,000 homes and businesses are without power, mostly in Kentucky and West Virginia.
