A horrific head-on crash between a large bus and a car resulted in the instant death of a Bahraini on Sheikh Isa Bin Salman highway towards King Fahd Causeway near North Sehla.
The cause of the accident was due to the recklessness of the Asian bus driver, reportedly drunk, who was driving on the wrong side of the road resulting in the collision with the oncoming vehicle driven by a Bahraini man.
The deceased has been identified as Ali Al Haddar, a Bahraini social worker in his mid-twenties from the village of Hamala.
Posts on social media networks showed cars avoiding the “maniac” bus driver while he was driving against the oncoming traffic on one of the busiest highways on the island.
No further details were available on the fate of the driver.
