A young Emirati motorcyclist was killed after he rammed his bike into a car in Fujairah's Faisal area on Sunday afternoon.

Col Saleh Al Dhanhani, director of the Traffic and Patrols Department, Fujairah Police, said the victim — in his 20s and identified only as HKS — died on the spot.

Upon being alerted, the central operations room of the Fujairah Police immediately dispatched traffic patrols, ambulances, civil defence teams and paramedics to the reported site.

“The paramedics tried hard to resuscitate the victim, but he was critically injured, and bled excessively. The driver of the car thankfully survived the crash without any injuries.”

The body of the victim was shifted to the morgue of the nearest hospital and he was later buried by his family and relatives, he added.

“The accident file was referred to the bodies concerned to ascertain the reasons behind the crash.”

All drivers and motorcyclists are urged to strictly observe traffic rules and regulations, particularly speed limit, safe distance, and attentive driving for road users’ safety as well as theirs, the official pointed out.

Recently, a 19-year-old Emirati motorcyclist was also killed in a collision with a bus on Al Rams Road in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah.

The UAQ/RAK Police have launched a series of campaigns and distributed brochures to raise drivers’ awareness and curb the number of traffic accidents and road fatalities.

“Reckless drivers could face hefty fines, black points, temporary and permanent suspension of driving licence as well as trials.”
