The BBC network reported that eight of wounded suffered serious injuries. Firefighters rescued five drivers trapped in their cars.

Some reports said the crash went on for 10 minutes as cars continuously collided with each other.
Driver Martin Stammers said the scene was "horrendous" and described seeing cars under trucks and people lying on the floor.
He said visibility was about 10 to 20 yards when he approached the bridge and saw five cars smashed into each other with one across the outside lane.
He said he managed to squeeze through a gap between that car and the central reservation, he said.
