At least six people were killed and eight others left injured after a pileup involving 21 vehicles on Interstate 90 near Hardin, Montana, on June 15, local media reported citing authorities.

Two children were among those killed in the pileup, which investigators expect was caused by an “isolated extreme weather event,” ABC reported, citing Sgt. Jay Nelson of Montana Highway Patrol.

Motorists reported dense fog and heavy tailbacks following the incident.

The National Weather Service (NWS) said strong winds from an outflow were possible and warned of severe storms near Hardin on Friday evening.
