Col Ali Saeed Al Alkeem, director of the RAK traffic and patrols department, said the Central Operations Room of the RAK Police has dispatched police patrols, rescue teams, and paramedics to the site when alerted of the hazardous collision.
“The driver of the first car, a 19-year-old Emirati identified only as A.H.A., received serious injuries and fractures all over his body due to the impact of the accident.”
The 17-year-old Arab resident, identified simply as M.A.A., travelling in the same car also sustained severe injuries and fractures all over his body, he added. “Both young men were rushed to the hospital for treatment and medical care.”
Col Alkeem said the 34-year-old driver of the other car, an Asian man, identified as S.A.B., also received serious injuries and was shifted to the hospital for treatment and medical care.
“The initial re-enactment of the accident showed that the mishap was blamed on the Emirati driver who lost control over the steering wheel, rammed into a lamp post, and veered off the road, and ran into to another car running in the other direction.”
The impact of the collision has cut one of the two cars, he said. “The black Lexus car driven by the Emirati young man was the one cut into two parts,” he said, urging drivers to observe traffic rules and regulations.
Few days back, a 25-year-old Emirati man, identified simply as F.N.G., was killed early on the Saedi road in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah. “The accident is blamed on the young Emirati man who rammed into the rear of a heavy truck driven by an Asia driver, identified only as A.K.K., who was running the correct lane,” Col Alkeem said.
Official statistics show that up to 105 Emirati nationals were killed in traffic accidents over the period from 1999 to 2014, mainly due to speeding. “Some 108 motorists were nabbed last year for exceeding 200km/ph whereas 2,257 tickets were issued against others for exceeding speed limit by 60km/ph.”
Col Alkeem said young people are blamed for most of the accidents recorded, because of speeding and ignoring speed limit. “Inspection raids shall be intensified on a daily basis on all roads and areas of the emirate to protect road users’ lives and clump down reckless drivers.”
