Johhanesburg - Dashcam footage shows a huge crash involving 26 cars  along the N17 in Springs earlier in July. The pile-up was due to a nearby veld fire covering the road in heavy smoke.

Veld fire smoke

The smoke was said to be as a result of a veld fire next to the highway. Heavy smog drastically reduced visibility. Several motorists were injured in a chain of collisions on both sides of the highway.

26 cars are said to have been involved in the vehicle pile-up, according to Arrive Alive South Africa. Arrive Alive  posted the video on Twitter.

Safe driving recommendations: List by Arrive Alive

1 In the event of a fire, visibility can be reduced due to smoke and there may be large volumes of slow-moving traffic – drastically reduce speed, drive carefully and be on full alert.  
2 If visibility becomes poor, don’t attempt to drive through thick smoke or flame – many accidents occur when drivers attempt this.
3 Switch on your headlights and hazards so that you are as visible as possible to other vehicles, particularly fire tankers / emergency workers.
