More than 130 vehicles were involved in a pile-up this morning in the UK.

According to the BBC, the massive car crash occurred during foggy conditions on the New Kingsferry Bridge. The accident occurred in the town of Sheppey, which is located southeast of London.

Dozens of people were injured in the crash and at least eight were taken to the hospital in serious condition.

The Kent Fire And Rescue Service said that it had to use hydraulic equipment to free six people after the massive pile-up. No fatalities have been reported.

The accident began at about 7:15 in the morning. Witness at the scene said that visibility was at about 65 feet at the time of the crash.

Jaime Emmett, a 19-year-old who was involved in the accident, said that she saw brake lights ahead of her and tried to slow down. A vehicle hit her from behind, however, and her car crashed into the vehicle in front of her.

Emmett told Fox News: “All I could hear was the cars smashing in front of each other and I could not know how far ahead the accident was.”

Martin Stammers managed to avoid the crash and tried to warn drivers behind him about the pile-up. Stammers said that cars continued to crash into each other for at least 10 minutes.

Stammers said: “For 10 minutes afterward, all we could hear was screeching, cars thudding into each other, lorries crashing.”
