The pileup took place at 7:15 last Friday night by Gronau, near the Netherlands border. From the wreckage spanning several hundred yards of the Autobahn, fourteen of the thirty-five injured were hospitalized. One woman and two men are dead.

Even with best-in-the-world driver education, it's still possible to find drivers going too fast for road conditions.

DISCUSSION

I heard about this a few days ago. Quite tragic, really. It's been foggy here for many days now, it's quite treacherous.
