Via Americablog comes this amazing footage from an ice-slicked stretch of highway in Wisconsin:

A highway in Wisconsin was shut down earlier this week after 70 cars got into a huge accident during a snowstorm.

It’s not entirely clear what happened, but looking at traffic cam video, the road appears to be icy, and many of the drivers appear to be idiots.

I say “idiots,” because at the beginning of the video you see cars going very slowly and there not being a problem. Then you see one car, going way faster than everyone else, who suddenly hits an ice patch and causes an accident. The idiot behind him is going just as fast, and so on, and so on, and so on.
