Two people were killed and a third seriously injured in three separate accidents on Dubai's roads.

In the first incident on Saturday, a delivery man sustained severe injuries after he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed into a footpath close to Dubai International Financial Centre.

Police were alerted at 3am and the Pakistani man was taken to hospital.

The second crash involved a Nissan Patrol and a Jeep colliding on Emirates Road at about 12.30pm on Friday.

Police said the driver of the Patrol failed to spot the Jeep in front of his car as it changed lanes.

The Nissan driver rammed into the Jeep before it veered off the road and crashed, killing the driver of the Patrol instantly.

In the third accident on Tuesday, a motorcyclist was killed after his bike was rammed by a car that had ran a red light.

The incident happened at the intersection of Beirut and Baghdad roads in the Al Qusais area.

Police and paramedics were dispatched to the scene but they could not revive the man.
