A Bahraini citizen was seriously injured when he was hit by a car driven by an Asian. The accident, that occurred today (Friday) on Al-Estiqlal Street, was announced on official social media accounts of the Ministry of Interior, Southern Governorate Police and most social media active accounts.

Preliminary details of the accident indicate that the Asian driver was surprised by a young man who wanted to cross the street. He tried to avoid him, but he couldn’t due to high speed and lack of attention.
