Ten people were injured in three other accidents reported in the Emirate.

This would be the fourth death caused in accidents involving motorcycles this year. Earlier this week, the Dubai Police said 46 motorcycle accidents had caused three deaths and 47 injuries in the first two months of 2022.

Meanwhile, on Friday, an accident involving two vehicles and a bike on Rebat Road left two motorists with mild injuries.

On Saturday, a vehicle suddenly swerved onto the other lane and crashed into a motorcycle, leaving the rider seriously injured.

Yet another motorcyclist sustained serious injuries in a hit-and-run accident on Al Khawaneej Road.
