The accident took place because the driver accidentally stepped on the accelerator pedal.
A four-year-old child died and her mother was injured when they were run over in a school area in Dubai’s Jebel Ali.
Brigadier Dr Adel Al Suwaidi, Director of Jebel Ali Police Station, said that the police received a report about the incident at 3.40pm on Monday about the accident.
He said the accident took place when an African motorist, who was reversing his vehicle, accidentally stepped on the accelerator pedal instead of the brake. Both mother and child were crushed between the moving vehicle and a parked one.
The speed of the car was so high that three vehicles parked adjacent to each other were damaged.
This is a developing story.
