It happened near Galesburg, Michigan, which is located about 60 miles south of Grand Rapids. Lt. Rick Pazder of the Michigan State Police said many vehicles caught fire, including two tractor-trailers carrying fireworks and other hazardous items.

Video of the fireworks going off on the road is wild:

One trucker from Ottawa, Canada, whose identity has not yet been reported, died in the massive pile-up. Pazder said the number of people who were injured is unknown at this time, the Lansing State Journal reported.

Snow, wind and poor visibility is being blamed for the crash. Anyone living within a 1-mile radius of mile marker 90 is being urged to take shelter, although officials believe hazardous materials have been burned, according to WXMI-TV.
