This Snowy Traffic Jam Went To Hell Seriously Quickly

When several cars start to slide toward this traffic jam in Canada, it's clear things are about to go south...

Remind me later

Highway 401 in Ontario, Canada was the scene of a huge pile-up this week, and the whole thing was caught on camera.

When the first sliding car at the 1min 30sec mark comes into view it’s clear where proceedings are headed, but the speed at which things go wrong - accelerated by the appearance of an out of control truck - is pretty shocking to watch.

Thankfully no one was fatally injured in the wreck, but according to CBC News several people were taken to hospital.

You can’t help but wonder if it might have been avoided if people were using their hazard lights…
