One person died and five others were injured when a car jumped over the barrier on Al Wasl Road and collided with other vehicles on March 21.

The driver lost control and rammed a Roads and Transport Authority bus, two other cars and two motorbikes.

“He [the driver] swerved to the left and suddenly hit the barrier between the road; jumped over it before he rammed into a RTA bus,” a police source said.

One of the bikers suffered severe injuries as he was dragged under the bus because of the impact.

The passenger in the car that caused the accident was killed on the spot, and the driver was seriously injured.

Four people sustained minor and moderate injuries.

Dubai Police’s operations room sent traffic patrols, Civil Defence and an ambulance to the accident scene after it received a report at 12.35am on Saturday.
