KUWAIT: One man was critically injured in a five-vehicle collision at the Fahaheel Highway towards Kuwait City yesterday. Firefighters and paramedics worked for 45 minutes to remove the man who got trapped under the dashboard inside his wrecked vehicle. He was hospitalized with a critical spinal injury, total leg paralysis, internal bleeding in the pelvis area, low blood pressure as well as shock and trouble breathing. No other injuries were reported in the accident. A case was filed to investigate the circumstances which led to the accident.

Unlicensed weapon
A stateless person was recently arrested with possession of an unlicensed weapon, said security sources. Case papers indicated that the suspect had sent someone a video in which he appeared holding a Kalashnikov machine gun, threatening to kill someone. Seeing the video, detectives issued a search warrant and raided the suspect’s house and only found two empty magazines. But after confronting him with investigation results, the suspect confessed and led detectives to a nearby open yard where he had buried the machine gun after dismantling it. A case was filed and the suspect was referred to relevant authorities.

Drug arrest
Two Sri Lankan men were recently arrested with the possession of 76 packs of heroin, two packs of crystal meth and 31 Roach tablets. Police Patrol Director Major General Zuhair Al-Nassrallah noted that a patrol had spotted the two suspects near a Farwaniya mosque and approaching their vehicle; they found both suspects already high on drugs and looked confused. A case was filed and the suspects were referred to relevant authorities.

Trapped
A citizen was trapped inside his vehicle’s wreckage when he lost control over his vehicle and it rolled over along Slami highway. Security sources noted that firemen and a rescue team had to be dispatched to the scene to cut the wreckage steel open and free the man. He was later handed over to paramedics.

Truck crash
A terrible collision took place between two trucks near Nuwaiseeb border exit. Security sources said that Nuwaiseeb firemen rushed to the scene and hastened to free the two truck drivers from the wreckage since one of them had already lost one leg and both had been seriously injured. A fireman injured his hand in the process and had to be taken to the hospital for treatment.
