A recent Snapchat video has emerged showing two men joking together seconds  before they had a head-on collision which left one dead and the other severely injured in Saudi Arabia, according to MailOnline.


The men were distracted by the cellphone as they were travelling on the main highway between al Rayn and al Bishah in the kingdom.


The injured was taken to hospital and is said to be fighting for his life.


Footage taken after the crash shows the stricken car lying on its side next to the road. It is unclear whether the police are investing the cause of the deadly collision.


The isolated location of the crash may have made it harder for emergency services to reach the injured.


Here is the video of the deadly accident:

MJ-Sid | 3 years ago | Reply A video of Saudi youth driving while regarding traffic rules and regulations as well as safety for themselves and others is what will be more Newsworthy. I have driven in Saudi Arabia and seen them driving in US and Europe. They can put our Minibus drivers to shame with their reckless behavior.
Viewer | 3 years ago | Reply Its a left hand drive car. What really took away the attention of the driver (the younger person) was, he was eating dates. And he took out the seed of the date, and was looking for a very long time for a place to throw away the seed. If the car was travelling at 160 km/hr which is quite normal at highways of middle east, then those few seconds mean hundreds of meters of distance of unattended driving. RIP.
