Dramatic CCTV footage shows a bakkie veering into the path of oncoming traffic. Sadly, the inevitable occurs - the bakkie wrecks three vehicles in a horror crash.

Ljubljan, Slovenia - A huge pileup involving dozens of cars and trucks in dense fog killed four people on Saturday (January 30) and injured 30 on a highway in western Slovenia, police said.

4 dead, 30 injured

The accident took place on a key motorway connecting the capital of Ljubljana with the Adriatic coast. The area was wrapped in thick fog and police say this was the likely cause of the pileup.

Eyewitness photos published by local online media showed dozens of crumpled cars, some of them lodged under trucks. Police said some 70 vehicles were wrecked near Senozece, some 70km southwest of Ljubljana.

The road remained closed for traffic as emergency crews, firefighters and police struggled to provide help and clear the scene.

State STA news agency said the pileup was one of the biggest ever in the small EU country.
