Around 23 people were injured in four accidents involving a total of 96 vehicles on the Abu Dhabi-Al Ain road on Saturday morning as a result of low visibility during foggy weather, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) announced today, according to Gulf News.

Brigadier Khalifa Mohammad Mubarak Al Khaili, Deputy Head of the Abu Dhabi Police Traffic and Patrols Directorate who reviewed the scenes, said that as soon as the report reached authorities, a number of vehicles were dispatched to the locations to prevent any more incidents from occurring.

Traffic was then diverted towards Sweihan and flow was supervised and accident remnants were removed off the road.
