A Grand Rapids couple, Thomas Wolma, 67, and his 65 year old wife, Marilyn, reportedly were among the three people who died in that big pile-up on I-94 near Michigan City, Indiana, in the afternoon.

About half of the 40 vehicles involved were trucks that crushed cars between them when they collided.

Police say the pile-up happened in a heavy band of Lake Effect snow.

Police said wreck trucks and crushed cars still were being removed from that stretch of Interstate Friday morning.
