A very serious accident took place on Friday evening in the UK. 34 vehicles were involved, seven people lost their lives and another 51 were injured. The epicenter was the M5 motorway in Taunton, Somerset and the place was a complete disaster after 8.15 PM local time.
Everything started because that portion of the M5 was all covered in black smoke and fog decreasing the visibility and so, cars and trucks crushed into each other. The impacts were very strong, but also, few vehicles burst in flames.
The terrible accident involved a lot of cars and created a lot of panic between victims. You could hear mothers and children crying while the smoke kept increasing its intensity. The emergency services arrived in an impressive number and were actually very efficient. There were also a few for which it was too late.
The police is now investigating the causes of the accident and so far a firework display, that was held near the site of the crash is the main suspect. It seems it was the main source of smoke.
Different media social sites receive more thoughts from people who want to support those affected by the carnage that happened in the UK.
