Pictured: Emirati driver's car obliterated in high-speed horror crash
Mohammed Rashid Al Tunaiji, 21, was killed on Tuesday morning
A young Emirati man died in a crash when his vehicle sped off the road on Tuesday.
Mohammed Rashid Al Tunaiji, 21, ploughed into a cement barrier before his 4x4 overturned several times at about 11.00am.
Ras Al Khaimah Police said he was speeding and that no other vehicle was involved.
Paramedics said he sustained severe injuries and died on the way to hospital.
Brig Gen Salem Al Suwaidi, from the central operations centre, urged motorists to keep to speed limits and not to put their lives at risk.
Police released images of the scene, which showed the extent of the damage to the vehicle. Only a single seat appears to be undamaged, with the rest of the car twisted beyond recognition.
Al Tunaiji's funeral will be held today after Maghreb prayers.
