‘Miracle’ no one killed in 100-car bridge pile-up
It was “truly miraculous” no one was killed in a 100-car pile-up on a bridge in heavy fog, police have said.
Eight people were seriously injured and 35 are in hospital after the crash on the new Sheppey crossing bridge in Kent, which started at around 7.15am yesterday.
It then continued for 10 minutes as cars and lorries crashed into each other in visibility that was down to 25 yards with many people – including a family with a nine-month-old child – having narrow escapes.
