Saudi teen driver killed in stunt show

The car slid and swayed on the road before crashing into the front of the truck

An 18-year-old Saudi driver was killed when he rammed into a heavy-duty truck during a stunt performance in the Gulf Kingdom, which bans such acts.

A one-minute YouTube film showed the car slid and swayed violently on the road in the outskirts of the capital Riyadh before crashing into the front of the truck.

The film, published in the Arab language daily Sabq, showed the car was badly damaged in the accident on Wednesday evening while the driver was found dead by many men who had gathered for the performance.

Police said the driver, known by his nickname as “Smakia” was killed on the spot because of the strong impact, adding that the truck driver escaped unscathed.
