An Emirati in his 20s was killed and another seriously injured when their car crashed and rolled over in Fujairah on Sunday.

Brigadier Mohammed Ahmed bin Ghanim Al Kaabi, chief of Fujairah Police, said the accident took place at 4.30pm. The dead man was driving to Fujairah with a friend, also in his 20s, who was in the passenger seat.

Speed and a lack of attention by the driver caused the vehicle to roll over on the road opposite the Awhala area, resulting in the death of the driver while the passenger sustained serious injuries and was taken to Kalba Hospital for treatment, Brig Al Kaabi said.
