This is the shocking moment a pickup truck driver is thrown an incredible 100 feet into the air after being rear-ended at speed.
According to reports, the motorist died instantly during the hit-and-run incident which took place on King Abdullah Road in the city of Najran in the south-western Saudi Arabian region of the same name.
However, after two weeks the police have arrested the man believed to be responsible for the motorist’s death.
The suspect has been referred to the public prosecutor’s office for investigation.
In the shocking CCTV footage, two pickup trucks are seen driving behind a bus at speed on the inside lane of the dual carriageway.

The second pickup rams the back of the truck in front, and it veers across the front of the bus onto the road verge where it hits two posts and flips over several times.
While the pickup rolls towards several parked cars, the driver is seen being thrown high into the air before crashing to the ground out of sight behind a parked car.
According to reports, the motorist was thrown 30 metres (98 feet) into the air before landing and dying from his injuries.
The pickup that rammed the victim’s vehicle did not stop and cops spent two week tracking down the driver.
The investigation continues.
