Photo: Rostock chain crash kills at least 10

Dramatic chain collision on the motorway A19 near Rostock, northeastern Germany occured on Friday. A powerful sanstorm effectively "stormed" the roadway reducing the visibility under 100 meters. That was a real problems for the german drivers who are not really constrained by speed limits and in consequence around 80 vehicles collided at once. The accident led to total burn out of about 20 cars and unfortunatelly at least 10 people (drivers and passengers) lost their lives. The most complicated situation was with the cars running at high speeds which ended up packed together in a conglomeration of twisted debris. The traffic in both directions was closed and the rescue teams on site fear the death toll might yet rise.
