The accident happened Friday evening on the A31 autobahn near the town of Gronau on the border with the Netherlands. The weather was foggy at the time but it wasn't immediately clear what triggered the pileup.

Police said Saturday that 14 people were taken to nearby hospitals. Twenty-one people had only light injuries.

The Telegraph reports that police are trying to establish if the bad weather is the only factor that triggered the huge accident which closed a 6 mile-long section of the motorway Saturday.

Seven were killed and 51 injured in a blazing pile-up on the M5 motorway near Taunton, England, earlier this month.
