Twenty-one passengers were hurt after a bus crash in Sharjah.

Police said one person was seriously injured and another 20 moderately after the accident on Emirates Road at about 8pm on Wednesday.

The Sharjah force said the distracted driver of the bus carrying labourers had swerved off the road.

Lt Col Mohammed Al Naqbi, director of the traffic and patrols department at Sharjah Police, said the driver had lost control of the steering wheel.

“The driver’s lack of attention and concentration has led to the bus's sudden deviation from the road after he lost control of the bus,” said Lt Col Al Naqbi.

He urged drivers to pay attention and to adhere to speed limits.
