Snow squalls led to a number of pileups on roadways in Pennsylvania on Friday, including a 30-vehicle pileup on Interstate 81 in Schuylkill County that killed one person.

“There was a squall line with moderate to heavy snow, very low visibility and winds up to 30 mph moving through the area at the time,” weather.com meteorologist Jonathan Belles said.

The northbound lane where the pileup occurred remains closed, according to PA Homepage.
