Multiple car pileup in Maine

The weather is likely to blame for a collision that led to a 19-vehicle pileup in Maine Friday morning.

It took place on Interstate 295 and authorities are saying a car spun out of control when five others collided with it north of Falmouth.

Another 13 vehicles were soon involved making a total of 19 in the accident.

One person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The accident shut down the highway for nearly four hours, backing up traffic for miles.

Authorities also reported other crashed along the Maine turnpike.
