Hail storm causes 24 car pile up in Thielle

15 people were injured after a hail storm on Sunday afternoon caused a 24 car pileup on the A5 at Thielle at around 4pm.

Police from the canton of Neuchâtel say the sudden drop in temperatures caused heavy and localised hail showers to leave a thick layer of ice on the motorway.

Reports say the hail, which also struck Biel, followed thunder and lightning in the northwest of the country and lasted about 30 minutes before turning into rain.
