Minibus overturned in separate accident on same road
High winds in Dubai led to a 15-car pile-up on Sheikh Zayed Road, which left one man seriously injured, a Dubai Police chief said.
Strong winds in the emirate on Saturday caused road signs on Sheikh Zayed Road to fly off, which was the cause of the 15-car pile-up, Colonel Saif Muhair Al Mazroui, director of Dubai Traffic Police told Gulf News.
In a separate accident on the Sheikh Zayed Road, eight people were injured when the minibus they were travelling in overturned, just after the Eppco station in the direction of Abu Dhabi.
Al Mazroui said the driver lost control of the vehicle when he swerved to avoid a piece of wood on the road.
