Bahrain: Saudi Driver Crashes - Lost or Never Had Control of His Car?

The Gulf Daily News carried one of the typical GCC traffic accident stories.  As is common, we're told that at some point the driver "lost control" of his car.

Whenever I read one of these accounts, my natural reaction is to wonder if he ever had control.

If you know this road, you've got to have a pretty powerful faculty to imagine an innocent loss of control resulting in a dip in the drink.   (Yes, that last word was deliberately chosen as I'm sure some drink of one kind or another was involved).  This chap was probably practicing for the F-1.  And as everyone in Bahrain knows, the nearest venue for that is the King Faysal Highway.
