South Korea: 100 Cars Pile Up, 2 Dead 68 Injured

Written By:

South Korea witnessed one of the most horrible car crashes recorded. On a foggy day, 100 cars ended up crashing which killed 2 people and left another 68 injured.

The accident took place on a bridge near South Korea's Incheon International Airport. Bad weather was the cause of this pile up.

Tae-u of the Incheon Fire and Safety Management Department said that the accident left seven of the injured people in a critical state.

In the accident, 18 foreigners were hurt, seven Chinese, three Thai nationals and two from the Philippines and Vietnam.

Cars that were involved in the 4,400-metre long bridge accident were removed. The accident took place in the morning hours.

Although the exact cause of what started the pile up is not yet known, the thick fog and icy road conditions played a key role.

Witness say that the fog was so thick that they could hardly see 10 meters ahead of them. Even flights were delayed because of the thick fog.

Back in 2006, South Korea recorded another accident which involved 29 cars, leaving 11 dead and more than 50 people injured.
