Six killed in Sharjah road collisions

Three Arab children and three Asian boys died in two separate accidents

Six killed in Sharjah road collisions

Six young people were killed in the UAE in two separate road accidents over the weekend, according to local media.

Both accidents occurred in Sharjah, it was reported. In one accident on Friday, three Arab children aged between 6 and 14 died when the car they were travelling in with their mother collided with a truck on the Al Dhaid-Washah road.

The children’s mother and two other siblings are injured and receiving treatment in hospital.

Colonel Haran Mubark Al Jazai, Acting Police Director, of Central Region, said that initial investigations suggested that the truck was speeding and jumped the red signal, colliding with the car and pushing it up a road barrier.

In another accident on Saturday, three Asian boys aged 20 and 21 were killed when their car collided with another vehicle driven by an Arab, who is seriously injured.

Al Jazai said initial investigations revealed that the driver of the car in which the boys were travelling pulled into the road before it was clear, colliding with the incoming vehicle.
