Appeals, arrests, and inspection and police controls couldn't stop the crazy burning of stubble all across Serbia.
Vladica Janjic found a really terrifying sight yesterday around 16:30 on the road Grabovica - Kladovo and he sent us this video.
A massive field was burning, creating thick and low smoke in the process, and the situation was really dangerous. The vehicles had to crawl. At the same time, the flame spread near the road itself, which additionally complicated the situation.
Besides the reduced visibility, the drivers didn't feel safe surrounded by fire and thick smoke which they had to breath while waiting for the fire to calm down.
A series of accidents and disasters were recorded this year due to the burning of stubble and crops.
The worse was the chain crash which included 7 vehicles that happened at Batocina, where one of the drivers lost his life, and the man who caused the fire, S.Dj. (67) from Batocina, was soon arrested.
Another crash was recorded earlier due to thick smoke near Leskovac.
A woman from Jagodina lost her car which was parked in a field since it was swallowed by fire. Luckily, no one was hurt.
