Shaken Secretary Of Transportation Reduces Speed Limit To 5 MPH After Witnessing Accident

WASHINGTON—Still reeling from having witnessed a brutal five-car pileup Thursday on I-495, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has authorized the reduction of the federal speed limit to five miles per hour, effective immediately.
