The sequence of events is as follows: A 21-year-old national, driving at breakneck speed, crashed his car against another. Having lost control, he jumped a street barrier and was about to ram into a heavily loaded truck coming from the opposite direction.
Trying to avoid the hit, the truck driver swerved his vehicle and lost control. The truck, now on its own, ran into a maintenance garage. It overturned, spilling the stones and sand it carried on to another car, which was parked over there. Fortunately, there was none in that car.
The drama, which left passersby speechless, took place around 7.30pm on Tuesday on Al Rems Street. Besides the car driver, the Pakistani truck driver and a Bangladeshi worker who was inside the garage suffered slight injuries.
RAK Police personnel rushed to the spot and cordoned off the area to keep curious onlookers from blocking the traffic.
It took the rescue team several hours to pull the truck out of the badly damaged garage and remove stones and fuel from the area.
Sources at Saqr Hospital said that all the three were treated for injuries and discharged immediately.
