“All I heard was the screeching of tires”

– There was fog and I could only hear the screeching of tires as everyone around tried to brake – one of the passengers told local media.
According to local media, thick fog forms on a regular basis on this stretch of Interstate 5. They appear primarily after rain, when the soil is saturated with moisture. When high atmospheric pressure prevents air from moving freely, difficult conditions may persist for some time.
