Hey kids! Here’s a hot driving tip: if you can’t see shit, slow down! Now have your gramma cross-stitch that into a pillow and then shove that in a time machine and send it to Slovenia yesterday, where dense fog caused this awful 70 car pileup.
This nightmare happened near about 42 miles southwest of Ljubljana, Slovenia, where visibility that seems to be three or four car lengths at the most made driving especially difficult. Thirty people were injured, and four killed in the pileup of around 70 cars.
This video is pretty disturbing to watch, with people leaving their cars and seeking safety on the steep grassy embankment, away from the cars slamming into the growing clot of disabled vehicles.
With the dashcam facing forward, you only have the audio and the terrified faces of the people to read to know when another car hits the group, which makes this whole scene even more chilling.
In visibility like this, you just can’t go fast. You just can’t. If you can’t see what’s right ahead of you, you can’t prepare to stop in time, and you end up with awful messes like this.
Be careful out there.
