Crash on Sheikh Zayed Road kills one and injures three

Bus slams into stationary vehicle on the shoulder of Sheikh Zayed Road.

One man was killed and three others injured after a bus slammed into a stationary vehicle on the shoulder of Sheikh Zayed Road yesterday.

A third vehicle was pinned by the bus in the crash, which occurred at about 5.30pm on the Abu Dhabi-Dubai carriageway, said Lieutenant Imran Abdullah from Dubai Traffic Police.

He said the driver of the moving bus was probably speeding. The man who died was thrown from a 14-person labourer bus, which had stopped along the shoulder to drop off a passenger.
