The driver sustained serious injuries, while a third occupant, aged 11, received minor injuries.

A 12-year-old Emirati boy died after the car driven by his 13-year-old friend veered off the road near Al Gheil in Ras Al Khaimah on Thursday evening.

“The 13-year-old, unlicensed for driving, lost control over the steering wheel on an unpaved and unlit road in Al Gheil area to the south of the emirate,” said Brigadier Mohammed Saaed Al Humaidi, Director General of the Central Operations, on Sunday afternoon. There was another 11-year-old occupant in the car.

The two teenagers sustained minor to serious injuries in the crash, added Brig Al Humaidi.

The central operations room of the RAK Police was alerted about the mishap on Thursday at 8.30pm. Police patrols, an ambulance, paramedics and rescue teams rushed to the scene.

“The 12-year-old died on the spot, while the injured were rushed to hospital. The car was totally damaged,” Brig Humaidi said.

The body of the victim was shifted to the morgue of Al Dhaid Hospital of Sharjah.

Brig Humaidi said parents should never ever allow their young kids to drive their cars without being licensed for the same.

“Many young children have died in horrific traffic accidents as the vehicles are driven by underage drivers.”
