Two Emirati teens die while driving home from Oman

Abdulrahman Al Junaibi, 19, and Nayel Al Shamsi, 18, were returning home after spending the Eid holiday in Oman, according to a family friend.

DUBAI // Two Emirati teenagers were killed and a third was injured in a car accident in Oman at dawn on Monday.

Abdulrahman Al Junaibi, 19, and Nayel Al Shamsi, 18, were returning home after spending the Eid holiday in Oman, according to a family friend.

Hamad Al Ameri, 17, was injured in the accident, on Salalah Road near Al Ghabah, in central Oman, and is currently in hospital.

A funeral was scheduled for Al Junaibi and Al Shamsi in Al Ain at the Mutawa mosque after Asr prayers on Monday. They will be laid to rest at the Al Mutawa cemetery shortly after.

Details of the accident that took their lives weren’t immediately available.

Last summer, road safety experts advised people to fly, not drive, if travelling between Salalah and the UAE after a series of road accidents in which several Emiratis were killed.
