Two siblings, a seven-year-old boy and nine-year-old girl, were killed in a car crash in Detroit. Thirty vehicles were involved in the pile-up. The crash resulted in a call for 20 ambulances. The children's parents are believed to have been injured.

The mile-long crash was caused by a white-out, snowstorm and icy roads. The two children and one adult were killed. Twenty more were injured and transported to hospitals. More than 12 fire trucks and ambulances responded.
