Saudi Man Arrested After Jumping in Front of Speeding Truck on Highway

A man has been arrested after he was recorded jumping in front of a lorry as it drove down a busy road.

The idiotic stunt forced the driver of an HGV to blast his horn and quickly switch lanes to avoid killing the Saudi prankster.

Police have now arrested the fool and charged him with endangering the lives of other road users.

The stunt was recorded last week in the Saudi Arabian city of Medina.

Footage shows the man dancing to music on the roof of a pulled-over car as traffic speeds by.

As a lorry approaches, he slowly moves towards the edge of the roof.

He then jumps into the road and steps into the lorry's path.



As the driver blasts the vehicle's horn and attempts to dodge the man, the prankster sticks up both his hands and appears to make a peace sign gesture.

He appears to miss the lorry by only a few feet.

The video went viral after it was posted and General Directorate of Traffic said it tracked the suspect down.
