This story is riddled with irony.

Authorities in the United Arab Emirates in the Middle East say a man survived a car crash, only to be struck by another vehicle while he was waiting for an ambulance.

Traffic officials in Dubai say the man did sustain non-life threatening injuries, and was standing next to a telephone pole, when a car swerved to avoid a vehicle driving in the wrong lane, and struck him by the side of the road!  His identity was not immediately released.

The head of the General Traffic Department of Dubai said the man died shortly after the 9am accident Wednesday. Officials say apparently the car swerved, hit the man, knocking him into the telephone pole he was standing next to. Yikes!
