Thick dark smoke erupted above the skies of Dubai’s E611 highway just outside Arabian Ranches 3 on Saturday amid an accident reportedly involving a truck.

The plume of smoke could be seen 16km away in Town Square, according to a post on social network Reddit on Saturday.

Dozens of social media posts on X (formerly Twitter) subsequently emerged of the destruction on the scene. Emergency services were quick to respond, putting out the blaze.

By 4pm on Saturday, the vehicles were removed and traffic was flowing smoothly again, according to The National newspaper.

It’s unclear how the accident and explosion occurred. But images posted on social media portrayed a truck turned on its side. Some eyewitnesses nearby said oil could be seen on the road near the scene.
