Posted: Updated:

JELLICO, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee police said a juvenile has suffered serious injury after 20 vehicles crashed along a 3-mile stretch of interstate highway near Jellico.

The eight crashes were original reported by Campbell County dispatch as a chain-reaction pileup that involved 10 to 15 vehicles including multiple tractor-trailers and a Greyhound bus.

Tennessee Highway Patrol Sgt. Stacy Heatherly said the crashes were reported shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday in near "white-out" conditions caused by heavy snowfall and fog.

All lanes of Interstate 75 had reopened by early evening.
