44-vehicle pile up in Abu Dhabi: truck driver to face trial


ABU DHABI – The driver of a truck involved in a 44-vehicle pileup in Abu Dhabi will be tried in court on multiple charges.

Police said the truck driver has been charged with reckless driving, driving in foggy weather, and causing an accident that injured people and damaged their property.

Trucks and all heavy vehicles are banned from plying UAE roads during heavy fog.

Brigadier Ali Khalfan Al Daheri, director of Central Operations Sector of the Abu Dhabi Police, said the truck driver is currently in detention.

The pile-up on Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Road in Al Samha last week left 22 people injured.

Police said tailgating and speeding in foggy weather caused the multi-vehicle pile-up. JMYDS/ Expat Media
