Two vehicular accidents in Abu Dhabi on Monday, October 15, claimed the life of one motorist while six others sustained injuries.

Lieutenant Colonel Dr. Abdullah Yousuf Al Suwaidi, Deputy Director of the Department of Traffic of the External Areas in Abu Dhabi Police, said that an accident on the airport road occurred between four vehicles with six motorists sustaining minor injuries. They were all rushed to the nearest hospital to receive treatment.

In another accident, a recovery truck driver died after colliding with two other vehicles. The driver immediately succumbed from his injuries and died on the spot.

After the Abu Dhabi Police received reports about the incidents, police patrols, ambulances, paramedics and rescue teams were immediately deployed to the scene.

Al Suwaidi said that initial investigation points to tailgating and inattentive driving as the cause of the collisions.

Meanwhile, Al Suwaidi also reminded motorists to avoid gathering at the scene of accidents as they delay the arrival of ambulances and patrols which could potentially save the lives of those involved in the accident.

لعدم ترك مسافة أمان كافية والانشغال بغير الطريق .. وفاة سائق و إصابة 6 بحادثين في أبوظبي . . توفي سائق "ريكفري" في حادث تصادم بين ثلاث مركبات، فيما لحقت ب 6 أشخاص إصابات بسيطة في حادث تصادم آخر بين 4 مركبات على طريق المطار. وقال المقدم دكتور عبدالله يوسف السويدي نائب مدير إدارة مرور المناطق الخارجية في مديرية المرور والدوريات بشرطة أبوظبي، بأن التحقيقات الأولية أرجعت أسباب الحادثين إلى الانشغال عن الطريق أثناء القيادة وعدم ترك مسافة كافية بين المركبات. ودعا السويدي قائدي المركبات ومستخدمي الطريق إلى ضرورة أخذ الحيطة والحذر والوقوف في مكان مناسب لا يعرض حياة مستخدمي الطريق الخطر، وعدم الانشغال أثناء القيادة، واختيار المكان المناسب للوقوف في حالات الطوارئ تجنباً لوقوع الحوادث المرورية الجسيمة، وترك مسافة أمان كافية بين المركبات. وطالب السويدي بعدم التجمهر في أماكن الحوادث والذي من شأنه أن يشكل خطورة على حياتهم، واعتبر تجمهر الأفراد حول الحوادث سلوكاً غير حضاري قد يعيق جهود فرق الإنقاذ، وتشغلهم عن أداء مهامهم الأساسية، ويعرقل وصول سيارات الإسعاف لموقع الحادث. ودعا إلى ضرورة إفساح الطريق لسيارات الإسعاف والانقاذ لتتمكن من الوصول إلى موقع الحادث والقيام بمهامها على وجه السرعة . وكان مركز القيادة والتحكم بإدارة العمليات بقطاع العمليات المركزية في شرطة أبوظبي تلقى بلاغان، بوقوع الحادثين مساء اليوم ( الأثنين ) وقامت الجهات المختصة في شرطة أبوظبي بتأمين الموقع، وتخطيط الحادثين، ونقل المصابين إلى المستشفى. #الإمارات #أبوظبي #شرطة_أبوظبي #أخبار_شرطة_أبوظبي #الإعلام_الأمني ‏#UAE #AbuDhabi #ADPolice #ADPolice_news ‏#security_media

Don’t take photos of accidents

Brigadier Khalifa Mohammed Al Khaili, director of Traffic and Patrols of Abu Dhabi Police, said that people should refrain from doing such act as it “delays the work of traffic patrols, ambulances and civil defense vehicles” which can jeopardize the lives of the people involved in the accident.

Al Khaili added that taking photos of the accident, which he referred to as a form of “uncivilized behavior”, can have serious consequences that can put other people at risk.

Violators will be slapped with a hefty fine ranging from Dh150,000 to Dh500,000, and will be facing jail time of six months, according to the UAE’s Cybercrime Law No 5 of 2012, Article No. 21.

Drivers who will also get out of their vehicles to take photos of road accidents will be fined Dh1,000 for causing traffic and delaying emergency responses.
