By Staff Report

One man was killed and a woman and 15 school children were injured when a school bus collided with a stationary vehicle on Shaikh Mohammad bin Zayed Road today morning.

The accident took place when a Honda Civic car, being driven by an Asian, was parked on the right-hand side of the road — on the carriageway from Sharjah to Dubai right before Al Khawaneej exit — to change a flat tyre, according to Colonel Saif Muhair Al Mazrouie, Acting Director of the General Directorate of Traffic of Dubai Police.

The car was then hit by a school bus that veered off its lane, killing the driver on the spot. A woman in his company was critically injured. More info
