Around seven people have been killed and nearly 30 people injured in road collisions over the last two days, according to newspaper reports.
According to the Gulf Times story today, two Qataris were killed and three people injured in a vehicle collision on Rifaa Street in North Muaither late Tuesday night, while on Wednesday morning a truck crashed into a minibus, leaving 23 people injured in the Industrial Area.
The Peninsula newspaper, meanwhile, reports two pedestrians were crushed to death while crossing the road “carelessly” on Tuesday night in Al Rayyan.
Another pedestrian was reported killed in Abu Hamour, while in Al Unaiza, a motorbike driver struck a woman crossing the road. She died instantly, while the unlicensed driver is at Hamad Hosptial’s intensive care unit, the newspaper reports.
In the Al Muntazah area of Doha, a driver also reportedly struck a woman and her 15-year-old daughter, with the mother dying on the spot.
Doha’s roads are evidently not safe – be careful out there, especially if you’re on foot!
