Abu Dhabi: One man was killed and four others injured when a car flipped over several times after a road rage incident in Saudi Arabia, an official said.

“The crash occurred on Wednesday at around 21.19 on Al Aqeeq highway in Al Bahah, a city in the west of Saudi Arabia in the Hejaz area,” a spokesperson of the Saudi Red Crescent added.

The injured were admitted to the King Fahd Hospital, the spokesperson said.

The National Transformation Programme seeks to reduce traffic accident deaths, and human and economic damages of traffic accidents, as part of the Saudi Arabia 2030 Vision.

Serious traffic accidents decreased by 36 per cent and injuries caused by traffic accidents by 30 per cent, and the rate of traffic accident deaths per 100,000 people decreased from 28.8 to 13.5, by more than 53 per cent, between 2016 and 2020.

Saudi Arabia targets less than 10 traffic crash deaths per 100,000 people by 2030.
