Sort-of reliable German source (traditionally at least): http://www.focus.de/panorama/videos...zte-bei-karambolage-auf-der-a1_vid_29308.htmlPileup on the A1 in Germany near Cloppenburg today. Reports in german media speak of one dead. Only english source seems to be MSNBC, which claims three dead, citing a Telegraph article from november 2011. In three hours they still haven't corrected their misstake. It's journalism 2.0 kids. Pictures. Also Spectre, no talk of Texas this time.
They say dozens injured, two seriously injured. No word on deaths. Potential cause was a snow shower.
Quote the guy at 1:20: "I was doing 150 when I hit a wall of snow"
Regional, serious news: http://www.ndr.de/fernsehen/sendungen/ndr_aktuell/media/ndraktuell7575.html
They say six seriously injured, nobody life-threatening, nobody dead. There was an accident, then a sleet shower happened, and coming traffic failed to stop for the existing accident, causing the pileup.
