A multi-vehicle collision, also called pile-up, is a traffic accident involving more than one car. This phenomenon is the outcome of vehicles driving in top speed and could not brake near other vehicles so crash into the one in from causing a domino effect on all the others. Some pile-up accidents can be made up of more than 100 cars. It causes so much waste of human lives and properties.
