Two people died and six people sustained moderate to severe injuries in a collision between two vehicles near the cement factory in Jebel Ali industrial area.

Colonel Saif Mohair Al Mazrui, acting director of the General Directorate of Traffic of Dubai Police, said the crash happened at 5.45am on Saturday.

The two vehicles in the accident were a 14-passenger capacity light bus and a heavy bus with capacity of 40 passengers.
