Saif Mehir Al-Mazaroui, Director of the General Traffic Department, says Dubai Police were tipped about a skid minivan catching fire on Sheikh Zayed Road around 8:30, and a team immediately arrived at the scene collecting evidence, revealing two passengers were dead and 12 suffered injuries. Shocking footage of the accident shows the burnt van on the side of Sheikh Zayed road skid after ramming into the barrier.

What’s more, Al Mazaroui says another accident occurred involving a vehicle crashing into a truck on Al Khawaneej Road at 10:30 am. Dubai Police towed the vehicle out while the motorist and passengers were rushed to Al Rashid Hospital for urgent medical care.
