The driver rams into another car and then causing a domino effect. One of the vehicles involved in the accident, catches fire.


The second accident sees a car ram head on into the vehicle in front at very high speed. Three cars were damaged in the incident.

The third accident is similar with one of the cars speeding into slow moving traffic and causing a horrific collision, with vehicles catching fire.

The authorities reminded motorists to keep their eyes on the road at all times as serious accidents are likely to happen because of various interruptions.

This serves as a warning about the dangers of using phones and doing other things while behind the wheel, the police's Traffic and Patrols Directorate said.
