7 perish in foggy highway vehicle pileups

(Shanghai Daily)

14:14, November 27, 2012

SEVEN people were killed and 35 others injured in multiple vehicle pileups caused by fog on sections of a highway in east China's Shandong Province, traffic police said.

As heavy fog shrouded the province yesterday morning, at least 22 accidents involving hundreds of vehicles happened on the Beijing-Taipei Highway (Highway G3).

Seven crashes occurred in the Tai'an section, leaving one dead and 11 injured, while 15 crashes occurred on the expressway's Ningyang section, killing six and injuring another 24, Qilu Evening News reported.

Online pictures show mangled remains of sedans and sports utility cars after they crashed into the metal fence placed along the highway and heavy-loaded trucks rolled over, with windows and truck bodies scattered on the wet road.

The highway was reopened at 3pm following the rescue work, the paper said.

Nearly 50 highway entrances in southeastern parts of Shandong were temporarily closed as the fog reduced visibility to less than 50 meters in some areas. The fog also caused traffic jam in some sections with one queue of vehicles stretching back over 10 kilometers.

A red fog alert was issued by the meteorological authority of Liaocheng City while an orange alert was issued by Heze City.
