Two Emiratis and their maid burned to death after their car caught fire on Sharjah’s Mleiha Road on Monday. According to the police, the fire broke out after a tyre burst.
A top traffic police official said that after the tyre burst, the car hit a cement barrier and then veered off the road before crashing into a streetlight. The two Emiratis – aged 71 and 61 – and their maid died before rescue officials could reach the spot.
Their bodies have been transferred to the morgue.
