Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

A young man aged 24 was killed in a car accident on January 7, 2012 on King Abdulaziz road in the northern city of Buraidah located in the Qassim Region of Saudi Arabia. His Land Cruiser crashed into a light pole located in the road divider near the entrance of the town. The deviated path of the car tend to indicate that the driver was otherwise occupied while driving and lost control as a result. He was transported to Dammam hospital in critical condition where he later died. He never made it to Qassim university where he was to attend a 4th level math exam.
