Car accidents due to Smoke

Description

Summer peat fires not only destroyed houses but thick smoke from their fires was also responsible for decreased visibility on the roads, which in turn caused this seven car accident. Visibility was next to zero when one car slammed into a truck and was then hit by another and so on. A fire started, a gas tank exploded, and several people were killed instantly. Rescue workers and ambulances had trouble reaching them due to the poor visibility and the backed up traffic.
