SHARJAH // An Emirati man was killed after his car rolled over on the Maliha-Kalba road in the central region.
The accident occurred at 8pm on Monday. The driver, identified as AS, 18, died at the scene. His body was taken to Al Dhaid Hospital, reported Al Ittihad, the Arabic-language sister paper of The National.
Major Khalifa Mosabeh Al Ketbi, deputy head of traffic and patrols at Sharjah police, said initial investigations showed that the vehicle swerved suddenly, which caused it to roll over several times before it settled beside the road.
He urged all motorists and members of the public to drive carefully and to avoid distractions such as using mobile phones. He also called on drivers to observe speed limits and to check the safety of their vehicles and its tyres.
In an unrelated incident, a 36-year-old Asian man was found dead in his vehicle in a mall car park in Sharjah.
Police received a report at 4am on Tuesday about a vehicle in one of the lower parking zones at the mall. There was a man inside who would not respond to requests to move the car. Officers arrived at the scene and discovered the man was dead.
The body was taken to Al Kuwait Hospital in Sharjah before being transferred to the forensic lab to identify the cause of death.
