A food delivery man was killed in a traffic accident after an intoxicated motorist jumped a red light and hit him when he was trying to cross the road, Arabic daily Al Bayan reported on Thursday.

Brigadier Abdullah Khadim, director of the Bur Dubai Police Station, said that the delivery person was crossing the road when the motorist hit him. The said motorist had been speeding away, as the road was empty owing to the National Sterlisation Programme. Brigadier Khadim added that the incident happened at 9.30 pm on Wednesday, and when the ambulance reached the location to help the victim, the medical team found that the delivery man was severely injured and took him to the hospital. He reportedly died after reaching there.

Carrying out an investigation with the motorist, the police discovered that he had consumed alcohol and referred him to the prosecution for further legal procedures, Khadim added.
