The Abu Dhabi Police have heroically rescued a driver from what could have been a deadly road accident, after the brakes of his four-by-four vehicle suddenly stopped working at 130 kilometres per hour on a highway.

The motorist was driving along the Abu Dhabi-Al Ain Road at 130kmph on cruise control on Friday, when he realised the brakes of his 4WD had stopped functioning.

The driver, who lives in Al Ain, described his moments of fear and terror, which lasted for almost one hour. He said that he "almost faced death," when he suddenly lost control of his four-wheel vehicle.

The motorist explained that "this was the first time the incident occurred," adding that when he noticed his brakes stopped working, he tried to put the transition on the position (N), but the brakes were still unavailable.

He then immediately called 999 and the Command and Control Centre of the Abu Dhabi Police helped calm his nerves over the phone.

In the meantime, a team of 15 police patrols rushed to the location and guided him on the highway until he reached a safe destination off the highway from Al Ain to Al Mafraq.

The police said once the driver made the call, they first helped him over the phone by calming him down and provided tips and advice. In the meantime, the police patrols who rushed to the location guided the driver and kept his vehicle in the middle of the line of patrols. After clearing the road ahead, the police patrol drove in front of the speeding SUV, and slowed the car down until the two vehicles made contact, and then brought the SUV to a halt.

Brigadier Salem Abdullah bin Barak Al Dhaheri, Abu Dhabi Police Traffic Director, said that Abu Dhabi Police immediately went into action once the call was made.

He pointed out that the emergency plan was implemented in coordination with the operations department, traffic patrols, ambulances and rescue forces.
