A young Saudi man is facing the death penalty after three friends died in a drifting accident, the Saudi Gazette has reported.
Three others also were injured when the car they were drifting in crashed on March 3.
The driver is being held in solitary confinement, the daily said. Prosecutors were deciding whether to charge him with premeditated murder, which carries the death penalty, or manslaughter.
Drifting, which involves over-steering on a corner, is illegal in Saudi Arabia but remains a common practice, particularly among young men.
The stunt causes numerous deaths and injuries each year.
