The Grand Finale of a Fireworks Display might have had a lot to do with this horrofic motorway crash. The Fireworks Display took place at a rugby club and finished just a few minutes before the onslaught of the accident. It might be that the heavy smoke drifted over to the nearby motorway where conditions were patchy fog.

So sad Tommy,but another hypothesis is that the firework display was still going on and this distracted some of the drivers as it was so close to them. We're going to have to wait to find out the truth, and that's going to be very difficult for the families involved.
