 dispatcher at the State Highway Patrol says an unknown number of cars also were involved in the pileup on U.S. 24 Tuesday morning around 8 a.m.

The highway that links Toledo with Fort Wayne, Ind., has been shut down in both directions.

Authorities say a tanker truck caught up in the crash is leaking ethanol along the highway. The patrol says the tanker was one at least eight trucks involved.

A driver who was uninjured tells The Crescent-News in nearby Defiance that he "drove into a wall of fog."

That's why I fly everywhere I go. I would never fly to Toledo or Fort Wayne though. Ever.

Headline says "Patrol: Up to 10 semis. Aren't they sure how many? Then the first word of the story was not capitalized. 3rd paragraph,"The patrol says the tanker was one at least eight trucks involved. Don't they mean "one of at least trucks involved?" What happened to 10? And what happened to the SRs proofreaders?
