An Asian driver stood trial at the Ras Al Khaimah Criminal Court on charges of running over a motorcyclist, who died on the spot.

As per the indictment sheet, the suspect, who was driving his car under the influence of alcohol, rammed a biker and fled the scene without offering help to the victim or alerting the police.

After being informed about the accident, the RAK Police launched an investigation and managed to track down the accused.
