Abu Dhabi Vehicle Pile-up Leaves One dead, 60 Injured

127 vehicle pile-up in Abu Dhabi leaves one dead


A little more than a year ago 200 cars were involved in the crash on the Abu Dhabi-Dubai highway near Ghantoot, which was caused by heavy fog impairing driver vision. Last week a similar accident left one person dead and more than 60 injured in a massive car pile-up involving 127 vehicles on the Dubai-Abu Dhabi highway.

The accident took place in the same area between Sahama and Ghantoot (not like you know where that is anyway) around 8 am.

Those who witnessed the accident said that heavy morning fog and speeding were to blame. Nine of the 60 injured are in critical condition, according to the official spokesperson of SEHA (Abu Dhabi Health Services Company). According to a statement published by the Gulf News, police secured and removed the remains of the accident and re-routed traffic to normal within two hours. That’s pretty impressive.
