Early this morning on the highway that connects Abu Dhabi and Dubai, around 200 cars were involved in a mass traffic accident that has reportedly left six people dead and hundreds injured. Weather conditions were a factor in the accident, as a thick morning fog apparently reduced vision, which led to motorists driving full speed into the pile up one after another. Because the fog was so thick, people with serious injuries couldn't be flown by helicopter to area hospitals right away and were treated by a pair of doctors and nurses on the scene. Gulfnews is reporting that 25 cars caught on fire, and six full-size busses were involved, as well. Images from the crash scene, which you can view by clicking the source below, are incredible, including the one shown above. Thanks for the tip, Mahdi.

      feel very sorry about the people injured and dead. but this incident clearly proves that money can buy you super fast cars but it cant buy you the basic road sense that u should slow down when visibility is poor. common sense trade-ins for oil anyone?

      O.M.G.

      there must have been at least 45+ hyper exotics involved in that crash!

        I seriously cannot wait to see if there are SLRs and Enzos involved in this... wait a couple of days and the pix will surface.


        I already spotted a Lexus LS460 in pic 3.

      An incident very similar to this occurred here in Florida not too long ago. Also involved very heavy morning fog.

      Both incidents are equally as horrible for those that were in it, regardless of where they're from. Just imagine yourself in the situation and suddenly it isn't as entertaining, is it?

      Someone probalby stoped for their prayers. lol
        • 6 Years Ago
        Lol.....you sound like your about 16 so I'll go easy on you. Take a look at my comments on this site, I'm not close-minded when it comes to commenting on articles on this site. You started the close-mind talk with your idiotic remarks. Just get over it, you said some stupid stuff. No need to attack my character because I'm not the one shooting my mouth off with ethnocentric slander. You really need to grow up, talking about people's wives and the cars they drive.....get a life dude. Just let it go, you said some really stupid things, now you know it....learn from it....don't go attacking people for letting you know what you said was ignorant.

          O please this hole thing is over political correctness...and i have one thing to say to that...screw it.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Dude when u say 3series is king you have allready been lost to being closed minded. It is a piece of crap on a stick. The headlights look like a woman used to much makeup on her eyes. Of coarse its probalby the way your wife looks.

        yes it is sad that people died...but give me a break.If Jay Leno said this you would be laughin at it with me. You people need to get some laughs in you.
        • 6 Years Ago
        If Leno said it he would be off the air. That kind of thinking is not laughable in any respect. People died dude. You can't go making those ignorant anti-Muslim remarks and expect it to fly.
        • 6 Years Ago
        That's real funny A-Hole. I hope you got a good jolly laugh out of that. Ignorant idiots like you make me sick. Way to go stupid.
        • 6 Years Ago
        ethnocentric?? don't they have more big words in the thesaurus you can use? You sound like a 12 year old stuck on the next big word he discovered....

        c'mon kid, walk away from the computer from time to time and stop voting for yourself here... thats kinda sad.

        What is your problem? If your family gets killed in a car accident, how would you like it if I went to a blog and laughed at your family's brutal demise?

        • 6 Years Ago
        There you go Frick, join your ethnocentric pal. Your closed-mind rhetoric fits right in.

      As much as that accident sucks for those folks, I wonder if that used Pur Sang was in there?
      • 6 Years Ago
      "If you can't see, SLOW DOWN". Pretty sure that applies to sand, snow, fog, torrential downpours, and pretty much any other extreme weather condition.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Picture 12 has to be one of the fatalities. No number of airbags would've helped (you can see the deflated curtain bags). That's one gruesome looking wreckage.

      Uh Oh! They're running out of virgins down there!

      Inna lillahi wainna Ilayhi Rajihoon (To Allah we belong, and to Allah we return)

      That's crazy. I seriously hope it's not any worse.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I wonder if any 2 wheel driving and/or in traffic drifting was the culprit for the initial accident? Look it up on youtube if you want to see some crazy driving. Some of those guys drive absolutely insane.
