Huge pile up of 200 cars on Chinese bridge leaves one dead after heavy fog reduced visibility to zero


One person was killed on Wednesday when more than 200 vehicles were involved in a pile-up on a bridge in the Chinese city of Zhengzhou in heavy fog, rescuers and the CCTV state broadcaster reported.

Cars and trucks could be seen crumpled and piled on top of each other on the Zhengxin Huanghe bridge in the country’s central Henan province in pictures and videos posted on social media.

One car was jack-knifed in the middle of a pile in an image taken from CCTV footage.

Another video shared on social media shows a car with a large hole in its smashed windscreen. Pedestrians are seen wandering around in front of smoking vehicles on the bridge.

Other footage shows several cars badly damaged, with one completely caved in at the front.
