A Chevrolet Silverado headed south on US-15 reportedly lost control and slid across the median into northbound traffic.

The Silverado was then struck by a Ford passenger van, which had 10 people inside.

“There was luggage everywhere,” said Casey Schairer, who saw the aftermath of the crash. “The vehicles were almost unrecognizable. I honestly didn’t know if people would make it out.”

Schairer says that stretch of highway north of Frederick is notorious for accidents, “Take your time, slow down.”
