A 16-year-old Jordanian girl has died following a car accident on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road at approximately 1pm on Friday afternoon.
The Land Cruiser in which she was a passenger lost control, before smashing into a concrete barrier and overturning. The driver and three other passengers have been injured.
The girl was rushed to hospital after the accident but was pronounced dead on arrival.
This is the first fatal accident to take place on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, just days after the speed limit was reduced.
