A CCTV security camera has revealed that an Asian expatriate who died in a road accident had in fact committed suicide, according to Emarat Al Youm newspaper.
The video recording showed the man throw himself deliberately in front of the oncoming bus which was running below the speed limit.
The bus driver who was then held responsible for the death of the man was exonerated, as it turned out that he was innocent.
The pedestrian, who seemed hesitant, crossed the Umm Saqim Highway, opposite Dubai Police Academy, before jumping in front of the bus.
Twenty people were killed and 164 others sustained multiple injuries in run-over accidents over the past six months in Dubai. Drivers were held accountable for 19 such deaths since January.
