I think they'd already removed at least 1 vehicle, there were 3 still waiting to be removed in the leftmost lane. I think they'd already removed one because the hood of the lead car was smashed. The lead car was an SUV and it was standing on its front bumper at around a 45 degree angle. Its rear wheels were resting on a car. That car had its hood smashed and another car had hit it from behind. The good thing was that the driver and passenger compartments on all three vehicles were intact. The roof of the second car was supporting the SUV without collapsing at all.
Even so, that seemed a pretty messed up accident.
