Kuwait: Speed Camera Accident Kills Two Journalists
Two journalists and a driver die in a Kuwait City, Kuwait accident caused by a reaction to a speed camera.

A pair of journalists for the Al-Anba newspaper and a driver died in a speed camera accident in Kuwait City, Kuwait early Sunday morning. The incident took place as the reporters were rushing home from work on the Fourth Ring Road opposite Surra. The Arab Times reported that when their vehicle, described only as a Japanese car, approached a speed camera, the driver slammed on the brakes to avoid receiving a ticket and lost control. The car then veered into oncoming traffic and collided with another vehicle.

The driver who was hit is hospitalized with serious injuries while the journalists and their driver died at the scene. Police are investigating the incident.
