It was a somber Easter weekend this year due to the series of crashes on Interstate 77 on March 31.
Due to a combination of foggy conditions and precautions that were sadly not taken by drivers, dozens were injured and three are dead as a result of the massive pileup.
When word of this crisis spread, our local police officers, EMTs, firefighters and ordinary citizens reported to the scene or gathered where they could to provide help the injured and the stranded. On The Gazette's Facebook page, readers time and again sought information on ways they could help.
