One man was killed and three others injured after a bus slammed into a stationary vehicle on the shoulder of Sheikh Zayed Road yesterday.

A third vehicle was pinned by the bus in the crash, which occurred at about 5.30pm on the Abu Dhabi-Dubai carriageway, said Lieutenant Imran Abdullah from Dubai Traffic Police.

He said the driver of the moving bus was probably speeding. The man who died was thrown from a 14-person labourer bus, which had stopped along the shoulder to drop off a passenger.
