At least two people were killed Tuesday in a highway pileup of dozens of vehicles during a blinding sandstorm in the high desert north of Los Angeles, authorities said. Seven were injured, including two critically, in the crash that left vehicles scattered across Highway 14, Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Ron Haralson said. The sandstorm was whipped by winds gusting up to 88 kph, the National Weather Service said. "Everybody just came to an abrupt stop. There were people that were speeding and unfortunately I don't know if they made it through or not," driver Anthony Valdez Pino told KCAL-TV.
