    VIENNA, Austria (AP) -- About 70 vehicles slammed into each other Tuesday in heavy snowfall on a motorway in northwestern Austria, killing one person and injuring at least 37 others.


    Rescue efforts were hampered by the snow.

    Police in the province of Upper Austria said five of the injured people were seriously hurt.

    A Spanish woman who lived in Switzerland was killed, they said. Further details about her were not immediately available.
    Some people were believed to be trapped in their vehicles and rescue efforts were hampered by the snow, police said.

    That's probably because they were doing 100 MPH bumper-to-bumper - Crazy Europeans.

    Of course, we'd never do that in America - Except maybe Central Expressway in Dallas
