Chain-reaction crash in Turkey kills 10, injures 57 on foggy highway

A chain-reaction crash Thursday involving seven vehicles on a motorway in northwest Turkey killed at least 10 people and injured 57 others, officials said.

The pileup occurred in dense fog and low visibility on the Northern Marmara Highway in Sakarya province, some 150 kilometers from Istanbul.

According to authorities, the accident likely occurred when a vehicle hit a truck in poor visibility, triggering other crashes at the rear. Some passengers are believed to have died when they left their vehicles and were struck by another vehicle.
