Two drivers cut free from their cars

Hydraulic rescue equipment required at two accidents yesterday.

Two traffic accidents in Dubai in the past two days called for the use of hydraulic rescue tools to free the drivers. Yesterday morning on Algeria Street a Nissan Armada, Mitsubishi Lancer and Toyota FJ Cruiser collided.

The Mitsubishi driver, a 40-year-old Asian, was trapped in his car and after being freed he was transferred to hospital with medium to severe injuries. On Saturday morning, three cars and a lorry were involved in a crash on Baghdad Street.

An Arab driver, 31, was freed using hydraulic cutters and taken to hospital with minor injuries.
