It looks like he was flying not driving.
A young Lebanese man, identified as Maurice Hayek, was killed on Thursday when his car crashed into a shop wall in the Metn town of Jal al-Dib, the National News Agency reported.
Hayek, age 19, lost control of his Mercedes car while driving at a high speed and crashed into the wall of the Wooden Bakery shop in Jal al-Dib. [Yasa]
Wow he must have been really dying for some WB cakes.
Shame on you, Jabar. Shame on you… Maurice was such an angel, don’t you dare making fun of his death. Shame on you.
so illogical from wooden bakery to open a shop by the side of the road…
i saw this accident i couldnt know the brand of the car. shit man haram
Everyday parents are losing their children on the lebanese roads. I wish we have a strict law forbiding the fast driving. La Aymata the government ra7 dall neymeh w mesh fer2eneh ma3a. Where are the lights on the roads? Where are the derragine? 3ayb ba2a arraftouna
where are these kids parents teaching them and reinforcing the concept that speeding is bad?, that (i don’t know in this particular case if it was the case, i’m speaking in general)drunk driving is bad? that obeying a few traffic rules will help you live a little longer?
they’re not around (or they may not know, which is just as bad). and the fact of the matter is that, considering that you know the government has failed you, you need to take things in to your own hands. I’ve only recently started driving but I put a huge effort in to driving responsibly to the limits permissible by our roads.
IF he wasn’t speeding and IF this was a legitimate tragedy then yes, it’s very sad, it’s sad regardless of the circumstance, but IF he was speeding or being a dumbass or drunk then he kind of had it coming quite frankly and he’s lucky he didn’t take other people down with him. It’s a shame most lebanese don’t see that.
arabs take pride in how fast they can drive and how many inbetweens they needed to do to get to the spot one ahead of where they just were. the gain is infinitesimal the loss is phenomenal. this is a problem. learn from the mistakes of others and stop giving them social trophies for getting somewhere fast.
now before people flame me for how good a kid this kid was, i don’t know him, and i don’t know the specifics, but my message applies in general.
Do you think if you are driving responsibly you will be safe? do you think these kids who died last year at the Ittihad road were not driving legally when a speed car passing the red light from the cross road and kill them. Do you think that priest who died with all his family at Jounieh road was speeding? and etc..
Do you think if there isn’t a driving law in Europe or other civilized countries “not arabic” there will not be a daily loss or more?
Why every law is taking ages to be executed and most of the times it isn’t?
speeding or driving responsibly our roads should be more safe and it is the government responsibility. i don’t know how old you are. but i don’t think that you never cheated when you had the opportunity to do so
A strict law should be implemented by the government and executed firmly
i’m 23, but you picked the wrong person to accuse of cheating or lying, that’s one of the things i’m known not to do and am respected for (white lies MAYBE at most). being wrong, is a possibility, but here i am to argue:
forget of laws as laws, think of them as rules of thumb to be safe/safer. given human capacities and reaction times as well as probability, mistakes etc, you are far FAR less likely to be in a car accident if you follow them, and even if you are involved in one, you have a significantly greater safety factor. so to answer your question, i may not be SAFE, but i’m certainly safer. (i actually get feelings in my gut when i think about driving sometimes because i think of things that can go wrong, even with my driving)
my father has been driving for probably 30 years, you know how many car accidents he’s had? zero (sure he’s had a few scratches at roundabouts and many close calls). you know why? because 1) i’ve never seen the man go faster than 120 (that’s on saudi highways, in lebanon it’s probably not higher than 100). 2) he keeps his distance, 3) he doesn’t take unnecessary/stupid risks.
I agree with you that our roads aren’t safe (but btw, they’re getting way better this last few years if you’ve seen the beirut-chtaura highway), but you know what that means? that means you engage that part of your brain called judgement and figure that the road is unfit for the speed you’re currently at, absolutely regardless of the posted speed limits. surprises still occur, and those are tragic unfortunately.
Now i know that accidents do happen, sure the examples you gave (i’m not familiar with them) may have involved people who were driving safely, but, and you said it yourself, there was somebody else in at least some of them not doing things right: “when a speed car passing the red light from the cross road and kill them”.
I’ve read stories of messed up road conditions, i know they occur, my brother has flipped a car, guess what he does now? he drives slower.
also, i summarized to arabs because that is what my experience is with, i never excluded other nationalities, i didn’t say “go to australia and see how they drive in their lanes”, i’m sure they don’t all do it. but i’m sure you can’t deny that there are a significant percentage of civilized (see next paragraph) countries which have a much better safety record than ours.
the fundamental, underlying problem here, is people. it’s not money, it’s not resources, it’s not anything other than people. every single problem we have here (again, not excluding other countries!).
I’m not happy someone lost their lives. not for a minute, i just wish people would learn.
R.I.P maurice take care of ur mother from heaven!
AT LEAST HE DIDNT KILL SOMEONE ELSE.
his parents are to blame, the governement too but mainly he is to blame himself for driving like that.
show this picture everywhere
so that retards on the jal el dib road driving in rally mode understand that speed limit IS NOT A JOKE
and batman forget what you just wrote, your name is batman
It’s so ridiculous that you say that the parents are to blame – it could never be my mother’s fault if I drive fast. But what I hate you most for saying is “retards”. It’s stupid, we agree about that, but don’t you ever call people retards – as far as I see, the only retard here is you, calling yourself “Batman”.
Before commenting on this picture, think carefully. Maurice was – is – my friend, and you people have no idea who the world lost. You should be ashamed, you really should. I am sitting in Denmark, and I can only be disgusted from your comments. If one day your friend died in a car accident, I bet with all I own that you wouldn’t say that he was a retard. You are a retard to say such retarded stuff, so with love from Denmark; shut the f*** up cause Maurice is missed every single day, he was a true miracle unlike some cold, chynical people like you.
