An estimated 100 cars were involved in a massive chain collision on a snowy, icy highway today in Leduc, Alberta.

Hospitals in the area (the accident occurred about 20 miles south of Edmonton, a city of more than 800,000 people) were put on “Orange Alert,” which is reserved for incidents with mass casualties. Reports of injured drivers are still coming in, but there do not appear to be any fatalities at this time. Canada.com is reporting that there are at least two serious injuries.

The photos of the incident, which are largely being provided by Twitter posts by people at the scene, are pretty insane. Trucks and cars are strewn about the road and the snow-covered land on either side.

A local radio station, 630 CHED, posted this video, which shows some of the damage at the scene:
