VIDEO: Terrifying moment truck ploughs through cars in Abu Dhabi
Some 22 people were injured Tuesday morning when heavy fog in Abu Dhabi contributed to a multi-car pile-up on Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Street.
According to Abu Dhabi Police, 44 cars were involved in the accident, and videos from the scene showed crashed cars stretching for miles in the fog.
One of the videos uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday morning showed the terrifying moment an out of control truck slammed through dozens of the stopped vehicles, with people running onto the divide between the roads to get away.
The Abu Dhabi Police said in a statement that the incident that occurred at about 8am was caused by the low-visibility which resulted from the heavy fog that blanked parts of the emirate.
Abu Dhabi Police called on motorists to drive carefully in fog and avoid driving at high speeds. A warning that is made every year and yet never obeyed.
