PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A motorist who got out of his car after a minor crash on the Pennsylvania Turnpike has been struck and killed, and about 50 cars behind him were involved in a series of fender-benders that closed westbound lanes as a storm brought heavy snow to the region.

Pennsylvania Turnpike spokesman Carl DeFebo says the initial crash happened around 12:30 p.m. near the Morgantown exit. He says the victim got out of his car and was struck by another vehicle.

DeFebo says dozens of cars behind him were involved in a series of chain-reaction crashes.

The turnpike reported multiple crashes along several stretches in southeastern Pennsylvania.
