Brigadier General Saif Muhair Al Mazrouei, director general of Traffic Department at Dubai Police said two people were killed following a three-vehicle collision at 1.22pm on Friday, which was caused by speeding.
He said a Ford Mustang and a Toyota Corolla collided, causing the Corolla to hit the concrete barrier between the roads, and the Mustang to collide with a Toyota Camry. The driver of the Corolla and the passenger were killed due to their severe injuries, while the driver of the Mustang and a woman accompanying him were injured. The driver of the third vehicle was slightly injured, he said.
Al Mazrouei said a second accident took place at 10.48pm on Friday night at Amman Street, in the direction to Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, when a pedestrian who was jaywalking was knocked down and seriously injured.
A third accident occurred at 4.40am on Sunday morning when another pedestrian who was jaywalking at Al Quds Street was knocked down and seriously injured.
The fourth incident saw a ten car collision at 8am this morning on Al Khail Street, in the direction from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. He said one person sustained minor injuries in the pile-up, which caused traffic congestion for a short period of time.
