52 Vehicle Crash In Germany

Quote:
Three people were killed and 35 injured in a massive pile-up collision on a fog-covered highway in western Germany, police said.
The crash involved 52 vehicles and occurred on Friday night near the city of Muenster after fog settled over the stretch of autobahn (highway).
Experts are investigating details of the accident, which drew hundreds of emergency workers to the scene. A stretch of highway nearly 6 miles long was closed.


Fourteen people were taken to nearby hospitals and 21 people suffered from minor injuries. It is not known exactly what caused the accident.
In a separate accident, five people were killed and two severely injured in a head-on car collision in the western city of Aachen early on Saturday.
Police said the likely cause of the accident was a speeding motorist.

Re: 52 Vehicle Crash In Germany

Back in 2001 a sudden, blinding snow squall caused a 100-car pileup on Interstate 95, several miles south of the city. Horrific as it might sound, no on was killed, and those that had been injured eventually recovered. Most of the time stuff like this results from people driving to close to one another on high-speed roadways.

Re: 52 Vehicle Crash In Germany

I love the overhead shots, wish they took those sort of shots of major pile ups more often.

think the speeds may contribute to the size of the crashes they have in germany. here's another big one in germany i posted a few months ago

I have a news paper clipping in my desk, which has a picture of a crash in belgium that involved 120 cars back in the 90s, must've had this clipping about 15yrs now

No wonder a horror film called "The Fog" was made, it's lethal stuff.
