Four people were killed and 11 others injured in a traffic accident between a labour transport bus and a lorry on Emirates Road yesterday evening (on Saturday).

The accident happened when the lorry broke down on the third lane of Emirates Road near Al Nahda bridge, and the driver tried to pull it over when the bus rammed into it, causing a severe crash.

According to Brigadier Saif Muhair Al Mazrouei, Director of Dubai Traffic Police, the Command and Control room at the General Department of Operations, received the accident report at 7:10 PM.

“The crash led to the death of four people and the injury of eleven. One was severely injured, two suffered moderate injuries, and eight others were lightly wounded,” he said.

Brig Al Mazrouei added that a team of traffic experts was immediately dispatched to secure the accident site, collect evidence and probe cause of the incident. “Traffic police patrols rushed to the scene and facilitated the transfer of the injured to Rashid Hospital for necessary treatment,” Brig Al Mazrouei said.

The director of Dubai Traffic Police advised members of the public to adhere to the legal speed limits and to avoid distractions while on the road.
