A Saudi deaf mute man was split into two after a speeding heavy truck bumped into him while he was walking in the middle of the road in the Gulf kingdom, a newspaper reported on Saturday.

Police had to gather parts of his body strewn on the road amidst a pool of blood after the accident in the southern province of Jazan, the Arabic language daily Alriyadh said.

“His body was split into two while some parts were spread on the road…police collected his body and took it to the morgue.”

The paper said the man, in his 50s, was the sole supporter of his wife and two-year-old daughter.
