DUBAI // A man was injured after being knocked over while crossing Sheikh Zayed Road near Dubai Marina this morning.

"His injuries aren't life-threatening, they aren't serious," a spokesman for Dubai police said.

The motorway was closed on the Abu Dhabi-bound carriageway until about 10.15am to allow a rescue helicopter to land. However, police said the injured man was taken to Rashid Hospital by ambulance.

The police spokesman could not confirm the man's age or nationality.
