Woman held for driving and crashing in Saudi

Emirates 24/7 is reporting on the arrest of a Saudi woman caught driving and crashing a car in Riyadh. A link to the story is here, and the text is below.

Saudi Arabia’s feared religious police arrested a woman for breaking a long-standing ban and driving a car in the capital Riyadh, where she caused an accident with two other vehicles.

The woman, in her 20s, rammed into another car and sped in the wrong direction to escape police but hit another vehicle on the road. 

“She was not wearing any head cover or a gown over her clothes…..after the accident, she rushed out of the car and tried to run away but was caught by the drivers of the two damaged vehicles,” Alsaudeh daily said. 

It said the woman was arrested by members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, who arrived in the scene along with the traffic police. 

Women are not allowed to drive cars in Saudi Arabia but there have been online female campaigns over the past two years to end the ban.
