Seven accidents occured on Dubai roads in the last five days killing two and injuring 11 people.

An 'Al Khaleej' report said an Emirati driver was found dead inside his car that overturned on Dubai-Al Ain Road. According to eye-witnesses the vehicle veered across lanes before crashing into the concrete barrier and flipping over.

Investigation revealed that the deceased had called his brother saying he suspected he was having an heart attack. His brother expected him to pull aside and wait for ambulance. However, Major General Mohammed Saif Al Zaffin, Director-General, Dubai Traffic

Police, believes that the deceased possibly continued driving in pain. The official suspects that the victim may have died before the accident.
