Massive 44 car pile-up in Abu Dhabi yesterday. 22 injured but no fatalities luckily.

Quote:
Dense fog has caused a car pileup in Abu Dhabi, involving between 40 and 70 cars, according to local media reports.

A video circulating on social media showed drivers getting out of their cars and running away from a speeding truck that rammed into the vehicles in dense fog on Tuesday morning. Al Arabiya English could not the verify the authenticity of the video.

According to Al Khaleej Online The pileup reportedly occurred on the Abu Dhabi-Dubai highway, although there were other reports suggesting it had occured on the Al-Ain highway.

Another video showing the carnage.

The Volvo driver probably fell asleep at wheel, and entered the lane of an oncoming 40 ton Scania truck filled with gravel.

Video shows Volvo driver and passengers escape without a scratch.

Split second error can cause a lot of damage. The reason could be cell phone, Navigation, distracting co-passenger or drowsy driver. Volvo did well and I hope the truck driver was ok too, no details about that.

Wow. That was nasty. Completely the fault of Volvo driver. He was lucky it was more a side on impact from the truck and not completely head on which reduced the damage to the car otherwise he might not have survived. Also I doubt the speed was 112kmph. It felt more like 80kmph. This accident shows how even a split second divert of attention can be disastrous.

Not clear from the video. Did the air bags launch?
No curtain airbags launched. But, dashboard ones should have launched. Isn't it?

It also highlights the importance of keeping safe distance from the vehicle in the front; especially on highways. The car recording the accident almost touched the Volvo stopping after the crash.

We can see 70kmph speed limit sign in the video. So, the speed is likely to be around that.

Not exactly an accident, but a near accident. Received it on whatsapp - apparently there is a popular adventure sports in Saudi Arabia wherein people rush to a valley during rains. As the water streams start gushing through the valley, people speed away from the valley. Is it exciting? Looks very much so . But not exactly worth the risk.
