Foggy Thursday leads to multiple-vehicle collision in Abu Dhabi

Around 30 to 40 vehicles piled up on Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Street on Thursday morning after they collided with one another due to thick fog and low visibility.

Earlier today, the National Center of Meteorology has already released an advisory warning residents about the fog formation over scattered areas in the country. It said that there will be poor horizontal visibility to less than 200 meters.

Due to this the Abu Dhabi Police took to social media to remind drivers to be cautious when driving following the vehicle pile-u that happened just before Ghantoot on Abu Dhabi-Dubai road.

Likewise, the Roads and Transport Authority in Dubai also issued cautions about weather condition.

Dubai Police took to Twitter to give an update on the accidents that happened due to the fog.
