Three people died and 16 were injured in a 12-car pileup on the B30 route near the southern German city of Ulm in the early hours of Tuesday. Fog could be to blame.

Those who died were a married couple in their eighties and a 20-year-old man from Biberach, who was travelling in a different vehicle at around 1:15 am.

“A fog bank is likely the cause of the accident,” said a police spokesman.

Wreckage from the deadly pileup was scattered over more than 100 metres of road, leading to the closure of the B30 near Ulm-Donaustetten in both directions.

Three people suffered serious injuries and are being treated in nearby clinics.
