According to Dubai Police’s Traffic Department, the crash, which happened on Omar Bin Khattab Street at the junction opposite Ghurair Centre, was caused by a driver who took a U-turn where it was not allowed.

The taxi driver was driving on the opposite side of the road when a car entered the road unexpectedly, and in an attempt to avoid colliding with it, he ended up crashing into the shop. More
