Massive 100 Car Pile-up in Sweden Kills 3

HELSINGBORG, Sweden — At least 3 people are dead and dozen injured after a 100- car pile-up on a highway in southern Sweden.

The massive chain-reaction crash on the E4 motorway near Helsingborg occurred shortly before noon on Jan. 15.

The enormous pileup began as a collision on one of the highway’s bridges.

Eventually, vehicles in both lanes were involved in a wreck spanning more than a mile.sweden-crash

Police spokeswoman Eva-Lotta Hermansson Truedsson says at least two rescue vehicles were among the cars and trucks that collided on the slippery and foggy highway.

Multi-car crashes are rare in Sweden, which is said to have some of the safest roads in Europe.
