Authorities have released the name of a 7-year-old Canadian boy who died in a mile-long stretch of wrecks on Interstate 75 in Detroit.

The Wayne County medical examiner's office says he's Aidan Hicks of Windsor, Ontario. A stepsister was also killed. Her name hasn't been released. Other family members remain in a hospital.

The children were two of the three deaths in the weather-related chain of wrecks Thursday. The other victim was 54-year-old Menelaos Manolis of Allen Park.

Police believe a sudden snow squall surprised drivers on the slippery urban interstate. As many as 30 cars, SUVs and semi-trailers were crushed, buckled or damaged.
