Ministry of Irony: Muslima Defies Saudi Ban of Female Drivers
Dies in Car Crash
A Saudi woman was killed in a car crash in the capital Thursday as she defied the kingdom’s long-standing ban on female driving, local media reported.Maybe she also defied the ban on alcohol? Maybe trying to get noticed by needing rescued next to the youth center and it all went wrong? Or just an accident.
The woman, in her 20s, lost control of her vehicle and crashed into the wall of a youth club in Riyadh, according to the website of the local Al-Jazeera daily.
The car caught fire and she died, it said.
Whatever its fairly ironic. My son and I noticed a string of people driving through houses on the local news lately, we blamed it on K2 heads blacking out at the wheel.
