FUJAIRAH // A 16-year-old Emirati died and another sustained a serious injury in a collision between their motorcycle and a car in Al Sharm, Fujairah.

Police received a report about the accident at 10pm on Friday and an ambulance and police patrols were dispatched.

“The victim was with his friend on a motorcycle when they collided with a car. The driver died instantly while his friend suffered severe injuries and was moved to Khor Fakkan Hospital for treatment,” said Maj Saeed Al Hassani, head of the media department at Fujairah Police.

Maj Al Hassani urged parents to prevent teenagers from driving motorcycles or vehicles without a licence. If they do not have a licence, then they are not educated well enough in traffic rules and speed limits, he said.

Authorities are currently investigating the cause of the incident.
