The aftermath of the accident.
Six people were injured in three separate road accidents involving 10 vehicles during the past 48 hours, Col. Jum’a Salem Bin Suwaidan, Acting Director of the General Department of Traffic at Dubai Police, revealed.
The accidents took place as there was not enough distance between vehicles, and the errant motorists had jumped the red light, Col. Suwaidan added.

He explained that the first accident occurred on Monday morning on the Financial Centre Street opposite the Dubai Mall, where a Toyota Land Cruiser collided with a minibus. Preliminary information indicated that failing to leave enough distance between the two vehicles was the main reason behind the collision, which led to moderate injuries to the minibus driver, Col. Suwaidan added.
He continued, “The second accident also happened on Monday morning between two vehicles on Sheikh Zayed Road in the direction of Sharjah, because of jumping the red light. One of the two vehicles flipped over in the middle of the road due to the collision, while three people sustained moderate to minor injuries.”
The third accident took place on Tuesday morning between 6 vehicles. It snarled up traffic on the Dubai-Al Ain Road, which prompted the Dubai Police to divert traffic to an alternative road until the road was cleared of the vehicles.
“Preliminary information indicates that the accident occurred as a result of non-abidance by leaving enough distance between the vehicles, which led to a sequential accident between them,” Col. Suwaidan said.
“The first accident occurred on an internal road in Al Quoz Industrial Area in front of the Emirates Driving Institute, when a light vehicle collided with an e-scooter rider who was riding in an undesignated zone,” Al Mazrouei said. He noted that the biker was seriously injured and was taken to hospital for treatment.

The accident happened when a 14-passenger minibus veered off and crashed into the cement barrier on the right side of the road before it caught fire.
