(Part-2) California's I-5 was closed in a pileup that killed 2 people and injured 9 others in a fog.

The number of automobiles involved in what seemed to be three major collisions that occurred in close proximity to one another was as high as forty, according to Grimes.

 It was reported by the chief of the battalion that 18 of the trucks were tractor-trailers.

According to KGET, the accident was said to have occurred shortly after 7:30 in the morning. An incident took place along a rural stretch of the interstate near the town of Conner, which is located to the north of a region known as the Grapevine that is prone to snowfall.

The term "tule fog" is used to describe the low visibility conditions that occur in the San Joaquin Valley. 

This fog is characterized by a thick, rising mist that blankets the ground after rain has saturated the soil. According to KGET, the fog may persist because high-pressure air might trap it.

The Grapevine was expected to receive a few inches of snow from a storm that was moving southward, according to the National Weather Service. 

This storm was expected to bring additional hazardous weather to the territory from Saturday night through Sunday.

A warning was also issued by forecasters that the region to the north of Los Angeles might be impacted by ice and wind gusts that could reach speeds of up to 80 miles per hour.
