The United Arab Emirates suffered its worst car crash ever Tuesday, according to press accounts.
The massive multi-car accident killed four people and injured at least 250, according to media reports.
More than 150 vehicles, including 12 big buses, were involved in the chain-reaction collision that happened on the highway between Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Authorities blamed the crash on reckless driving as well as "heavy fog."
