A Wisconsin pileup is one crazy car crash involving up to 50 vehicles that has been immortalized on a seemingly endless video. With the dangers of the winter storms and treacherous ice brought to the forefront through the accident-ridden clip, viewers can see these Wisconsin folks crashing into one another again and again for just over five minutes, the Inquisitr describes this Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013.
The Wisconsin pileup occurred this Sunday on a Wisconsin road, and is the scene of such mayhem that at times it’s almost shocking enough to cause a few disbelieving headshakes. Caught on camera and immortalized online as a now viral video, the immense pileup shows Highway 41/45 near Germantown, where the narrow lanes are soon stuffed with spinning cars.
As drivers kept on speeding past the ice-laden highway, a crazy chain reaction number of crashes took place, bringing much more damage than the first wreck actually wrought. The Wisconsin pileup only gets worse and worse as the clip continues, showing some cars managing to avoid the massive wreck, while others simply careen and plow into other collided vehicles.
Some cars can even be seen slipping off the road completely in the dangerous incident. One Germantown police officer had this to say on the Wisconsin pileup debacle, immortalized on film:
“If people watch Nascar, and they watch the Daytona 500 or Talledega, where they wait for what’s called the Big Crash, where all the cars crash because they’re all so close together, that’s what this was like — only there was nobody there to stop it with a yellow flag and slow all the other cars down,” Miller said. “So you had that big, huge crash, and then cars just continued to just pile into it and taking evasive action. It didn’t stop. You know, it was five, 10 minutes this went on for. It just kept going and going and going. I mean that’s what was helpless about it.”
Are you also stunned by the crazy Wisconsin pileup? This is one scary car crash that you wish wasn’t seemingly endless, but is just hard to look away once it begins.
