34 Car Pile Up

10 posts in this topic

Police probing the M5 crash which killed seven people have said a firework display next to the road is the "major line of inquiry".

Avon and Somerset Police Assistant Chief Constable Anthony Bangham said his focus was the Friday night event.

He said "a bank of smoke" had been across the M5 at the time of the crash.

The northbound carriageway and two lanes opposite reopened on Sunday evening, leaving only the southbound outside lane still closed.

The 34-vehicle pile-up happened at junction 25, near Taunton, at about 20:30 GMT on Friday.

Anthony Bangham, Avon and Somerset Police: "We believe there was significant smoke on the carriageway"

Some 51 people were injured in the pile-up, which happened on the northbound carriageway. The motorway closed between junctions 24 and 25 after the crash.

A retired couple from south Wales were among the seven people killed in the 34-vehicle pile-up on the M5, a vicar from Newport said on Sunday.

It was thick fog they said.

1 of the drivers said it was like someone threw emulsion over the front windscreen.

I've been in fog like that, not a good look, you slow down cos you don't wana suddenly hit someone in front of you but then you don't want someone careering into the back of you either.

Fucked conditions.
