    That stretch of interstate was being reopened around 5:45 p.m. after a wrecker had a chance to remove one of the vehicles from the roadway.

    Initial reports were that up to three people, including a pediatric patient, had been injured and were transported to DHMC by Hanover Ambulance.  None of their injuries were believed to be life-threatening.

    Further to the west on Interstate 89 near Mile Marker 30 snow was beginning to fall late Monday afternoon and several vehicle slide-offs were being reported.
