Police officials said the accident occurred on the Oman Road, the back street of Sahara Centre in Sharjah. Investigators arrived at the accident site and found it was caused by excessive speeding and abrupt veering by the truck involved, which overturned. Its driver escaped unhurt. Traffic was congested around 8am, by which police rescue teams were able to get the truck out of the way. Traffic flow returned to normal, but continued to proceed at snail's pace.
