Abu Dhabi: 29 workers were injured as a bus transporting labourers overturned near Khalifa City late on Wednesday, said traffic police.
Speeding led to the accident, said the police. “The driver was driving over the speed limit and as he tried to take a turn at a roundabout he lost control of the bus. The bus overturned, injuring at least 29 workers,” said a police source.
Three workers suffered from serious injuries while others suffered from minor to medium injuries, the source said.
25 of the injured were Filipinos while four were Egyptians.
Soon as the central control room received the information, rescue and ambulance vehicles rushed to the scene and took the injured to Al Mafraq hospital, the source said.
