@Tony- It is an accident case, the death was caused unintentionally. Even if it proved it was due to negligence of the driver, the charge is manslaughter, not murder. While the incident is unfortunate, accidents do happen and it can happen to anyone.

Only in Kuwait can a local get away 3 years jail time for killing 8 people. In other words, the cost of taking away an individual''s life is 4 and half months.
