Eight dead in 200-car Abu Dhabi pile-up
In the early hours of March 11, an accidental chain reaction caused a massive pile-up in Abu Dhabi. Eight people died in the accident that involved as many as 200 vehicles on the Abu Dhabi-Dubai highway. Thirty-nine people were injured in this unprecedented accident that caused 92 vehicles to catch fire. The cause of the accident was heavy fog and, of course, speeding drivers.
Update: Latest reports suggest 60 cars, 3 dead and 350 injured.
The smartest thing you can do in foggy weather is turn on your lights, stay under 50 kph, keep a safe distance, look as far ahead as possible, and keep off the fast lane to avoid speeding losers. Especially keep track of cheap company cars, heavily-tinted expensive cars, taxis, company mini-vans and Arabian Adventures 4WDs. Their drivers are the dumbest bunch.
