(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) A 34-year-old Arab citizen succumbed to injuries he received in a traffic accident on an internal road in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah early on Tuesday.

According to a senior officer, two other people, an Emirati national and an Arab resident, sustained several injuries, bruises and fractures in the gruesome collision involving two cars.

Col Ali Saeed Alalaikam, Director of the Traffic and Patrols Department, RAK Police, attributed the accident to driving on the wrong side and dense fog which lasted for a long time early in the morning.

"Initial investigations showed that the 60-year-old Emirati motorist, identified as N.A., was accompanied by a 37-year-old Arab resident named H.T.A., and was driving against the traffic."

The victim, A.M.H., failed to notice the errant driver, because of the fog. He tried to avoid colliding with the old man's car, but to no avail.

"A.M.H, rammed into the other vehicle, lost control over the steering wheel, hit the median of the road, and overturned seral times."


The impact of the accident was so severe that the victim died on the spot. The passengers in the other car sustained minor injuries, he added.

The Central Operations Room of the RAK Police, having been alerted of the accident, dispatched police, patrols, civil defence, and rescue teams to the scene in record time.

"The body of the deceased was shifted to the morgue of the hospital while the two injured men were admitted for treatment and medical care," Col Alalaikam said, urging motorists to abide by set rules and to be more cautious on the road during instable and foggy weather.

Driving during fog can be extremely dangerous since fog can drift rapidly and is often patchy. "Motorists need to drive very slowly with dipped headlights. Full-beam lights reflect off the fog causing a 'white wall' effect."

Motorists need to keep an eye on speed because fog can give the illusion of moving in slow motion. "They also have to use fog lights which have to be turned off when the visibility improves."
