Drunk driver storms Saudi girl school

A Saudi man got drunk, drove his car towards a girl school in the Gulf Kingdom and tried to storm into the building through the gate before hitting the school guard.

Police said the guard stood defiantly at the gate and shouted to the driver to go away but the man pressed the accelerator and lunged forward.

The guard, who made no move to flee as the car came close to him, was run over by the vehicle before the driver fled the scene.

“The guard was taken to hospital with medium injuries…he told police the driver was shouting incomprehensible words as he was drunk,” the Arabic language daily Alhayat said in a report from the eastern province of Ihsa.
