The damaged vehicle rest on the sand in Ajman.
An Arab national, identified as BSG, 49, was killed while his wife, 35, and two children aged 3 and 4, sustained minor injuries after his car had overturned in Al Zawra area on Al Ittihad Street in Ajman.
According to Lieutenant Colonel Abdullah Al Falasi, Director of Traffic and Patrols Department at Ajman Police, the accident took place as a result of the driver being busy with his mobile phone, causing the vehicle to swerve abruptly to hit the pavement and then overturn in the central reservation. Police patrols, civil defence vehicles and national ambulances rushed to the scene of the accident to rescue the injured.
The Police have urged motorists to abide by traffic laws.
However, the driver succumbed to the injuries he sustained when the vehicle overturned because he did not fasten the seatbelt.
Al Falasi pointed out that busying oneself with mobile phones is now a major cause of traffic accidents. He stressed the need for drivers to concentrate, leave mobile phones while driving, fasten seatbelts and abide by traffic rules.
