Lebanese national Mohammed Fawwaz, who hails from the southern town of Saksakiyeh, and a fellow worker managed to narrowly escape death on Sunday as their pickup truck caught fire on the Sidon-Tyre highway.
According to the National News Agency, the pickup, which is operated by Bandar Gallery, was carrying furniture when it went up in flames in the al-Matariyeh area.
“Fawwaz and his colleague quickly jumped from the vehicle, which was completely gutted by the flames along with its cargo,” NNA said.
An ambulance belonging to the Islamic Risala Scout Association rushed the two men to a hospital in Tyre after they suffered bruises in the accident as Civil Defense firefighters arrived on the scene and doused the blaze, the agency added.
