In a major accident, a speeding SUV which overshot a traffic light at Khalifa Al Atiyya Intersection in Doha fell off the bridge onto the February 22 Street underpass on Wednesday night.
A tweet from the Ministry of Interior on Thursday attributed the accident to ‘overspeed and failure to obey the traffic signals.’
The vehicle smashed through the metal railings on one side of the bridge, near the Midmac Flyover, before plunging down to the February 22 Street, which is a part of Al Shamal Expressway.
No information is available about the status of the occupant(s) of the vehicle or whether any other vehicle on February 22 Street was involved in the accident when the SUV fell from above.
Following the accident, police blocked traffic through the affected stretch of the road until the area was cleared of the wreckage and debris.
Yesterday, concrete blocks could be seen placed against the metal railing on either side of the bridge.
