One person has died and eight people injured in a 19-vehicle crash in Abu Dhabi’s al-Maqatara area, the Abu Dhabi police said on Tuesday.
“The deceased was identified as an Asian, and eight motorists were left with injuries,” the police said in a statement.
The accident was the result of the drivers’ failure to consider the weather conditions and make sure that a safe distance was kept with the car in front of them, the statement added.
The police urged drivers to take caution on the road to minimize distractions, especially during foggy hours, to avoid accidents.
With heavy fog reported across the country on Tuesday, officials warned that the weather could last for a few days.
