Fire engulfs a pile of wrecked vehicles near Ghantoot, United Arab E
Media in the United Arab Emirates reported four separate accidents, the largest involving more than 200 cars, on the highway connecting the cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.
The biggest wreck began in the early morning near Ghantoot, about seven kilometers (4.5 miles) from Dubai. At least 25 cars burned among the 200 that piled up as the fog and high speeds made for a deadly mixture, police said.
The scope of the accident and limited visibility delayed rescue efforts until around noon, media reports said, when helicopters began taking the injured to hospitals.
The accident resulted in a 20-kilometer (12-mile) traffic jam that lasted for several hours.
