 Today's weather trivia: 9 March 2007: Snow and high wind led to
chain-reaction crashes of cars, trucks, vans, motorcoaches, and school buses
on Highway 400 from Toronto to Barrie, ON. Near Newmarket, the driver of a
car "submarined" under a semi-trailer was trapped for 4 hours in a -37°C
wind chill until a crane lifted the semi and he was cut from the wreckage.
Despite frostbite, bruises, and a broken ankle, he survived.
