"A traffic patrol, an ambulance, and paramedics were immediately dispatched to the reported spot," Al Maasim confirmed.

"With further investigation, the police officers, who were assigned to the case, discovered that the victim's car broke down and he was pulling over on the shoulder of the road to check it when the suspect's speeding vehicle ran over him and fled the scene," Al Maasim added.

"The competent investigators were able to locate and arrest the European driver and his vehicle in less than a day," he continued.
