Six people suffered minor injuries in a 25-car pile-up on the Al Ain-Abu Dhabi Road on Monday due to foggy conditions, according to Abu Dhabi Police.

“Twenty-five vehicles were involved in an early-morning crash due to low visibility,” official news agency WAM quoted Ali Khalfan Al Dhaheri, director-general of Central Operations at Abu Dhabi Police as saying.

The injured received first aid on the spot and were then taken to Tawam Hospital in Al Ain for further medical care, he added.

According to preliminary investigation, the incident happened due to speeding in low visibility, the police officer said.

He urged motorists to take extra precautions, observe traffic safety measures, reduce speed and maintain safe distance between vehicles while driving in foggy conditions.
