Sharjah: An Indian man was seriously injured after his wife accidentally stepped on the accelerator while reversing their car, pinning him to the ground in Sharjah on Saturday afternoon, police told Gulf News.

The 44-year-old victim, identified as S.S., was reportedly guiding his wife as she reversed their car from a busy parking lot near the Buhaira police station at about 2.30pm on Saturday. Police said the couple was about to leave the area when the husband decided to guide his wife as she manoeuvred the vehicle out of the parking lot.

Police said the man was standing at the back of the vehicle when his wife accidentally stepped hard on the accelerator while reversing, knocking him to the ground.

The man suffered serious injuries and was taken to Al Qasimi Hospital. His condition was pronounced stable two hours after the accident but remains in intensive care.

Police have taken the driver into custody for further interrogation.

    Very sad to know. these kind of mistakes are very costly. Alway stay away from the rear part of the car as drivers are normally half blind. Wish complete recovery for her husband .
