Another sad car accident resulting in death. What would it take for the Lebanese drivers to drive defensively and how many innocent victimes should die for our government to institute proper road laws with signs and tickets for the violators, so as to prevent unecessary victims.
Very sad news indeed!!. My sincere condolences to the family, its relatives and friends.

This is depressing..But it makes me more depressed to see that no one cares about human value in Lebanon instead everyone is focusing on the sectarian topic….
Sadly the Lebanese didn't learn from their mistakes...
