An old Saudi woman was killed in a road accident involving a car driven by her daughter in defiance of a long-standing ban on driving by women in the conservative Muslim Gulf Kingdom, press reports said on Wednesday.

The girl was driving her sick mother for treatment at a hospital in the central town of Aflaj when the car overturned on the road because of a tyre blast.

“The mother was killed in the accident, her daughter, in her 20s, was injured and taken to hospital,” Sharq daily said.

  3. Those who have owned a motorcycle know what a wonderful feeling and experience it is to ride one. They will also be fully aware of how risky driving a motorcycle can be, which is part of the thrill unfortunately. Having a motorcycle accident compared to a car accident is completely different story.
