WAKEFIELD, Mass. — A 55-vehicle pileup in Massachusetts that included tractor-trailers is just one of several multi-vehicle crashes reported early Wednesday on icy roads across Massachusetts.

The crash happened around 6:15 a.m. between Exits 39 and 40 near Wakefield. The large-scale collision involved approximately 55 cars, according to Massachusetts State Police. Nearly 30 of those vehicles were towed away.

Eight people were transported to the hospital with minor injuries, police said. The highway was completely shut down for several hours before reopening.

Massachusetts Gov. Baker declared a two-hour delay for non-essential state employees following reports of several multi-car crashes across the state Wednesday morning.
