Eight people were killed and six seriously injured on Monday morning in a traffic accident involving a minibus on Mohamed Bin Zayed Road, police said.

Brigadier Saif Muhair Al Mazroui, director of Dubai Police Traffic Department, said they received a report of an accident between a mini bus and a truck on Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed road before Mirdif City Centre towards Sharjah.

“The mini bus crashed into the back of a halted truck on the right road shoulder. The mini bus was trapped under the truck. Eight were killed, two seriously injured and two others sustained moderate injuries. All were transferred to Rashid Hospital,” Brig Al Mazroui said.

“The mini bus was carrying 13 passengers and the driver, which caused major fatalities. Accidents involving trucks or buses always result in deaths and serious injuries.”

The bodies of eight people have been shifted to the mortuary, social worker Nasir Vatanapally told Gulf News at Rashid hospital.
