Gulf News reported that a man and two women were killed when their car caught fire after a four-vehicle smash on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai on Wednesday afternoon. The accident happened when the victims’ vehicle halted due to another traffic accident on the road and another vehicle crashed into their car from behind which caused the blaze, the newspaper quoted Brigadier Adel Al Suwaidi, Director of Jebel Ali Police station, detailing the development.

“The command centre received the emergency call at 4:40 pm on Wednesday about an accident between four cars. Police patrols and ambulances went to the area. One of the cars burned and the passengers died inside the car,” Al Suwaidi told the newspaper. He said all the three were Asians.
