The seven-year-old child was killed after being run over by the car of a reckless woman driver who was driving without paying attention, and being alerted while driving in an internal road in Al Nuaimia District.

One of the men was killed while he was driving in the wrong direction of Al Humaidiay main road, crashed with a car coming from the opposite direction, and died on the spot after he was flown away from his car, while the other man was killed after he was run over by a vehicle whose driver tried to drive on the hard shoulder violating traffic safety regulations, forcing him to run over two pedestrian males one of whom lost his life and the other suffered from serious injuries, receiving treatment in Khalifa Hospital in Ajman.

Ali Saeed Al Matroushi, Director of Accident and Traffic Section of the Ajman Traffic Department said these accidents were disappointing officials of the department as they thought the awareness being provided to the public as part of the traffic week would minimise the number of fatal accidents which cause public loss of lives and properties.

Commenting on the accidents, he said the drivers, including the one who killed himself by driving in the wrong direction, were reckless drivers who were not trying to follow the traffic rules.

Motorists behind wheels should follow traffic safety rules to protect themselves and others from deaths or casualties that could make them invalid.
