RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, July 4 (UPI) -- Four people were killed and three others were injured when a car traveling outside of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, collided with a camel, officials said.

The accident happened on an unlit road just outside of the capital, Gulf News reported Thursday.

Two people died at the scene and two died later at a hospital. Their names were not released but all of the victims were related, Gulf News said. The three survivors were hospitalized with serious injuries.

Such incidents have caused several accidents, prompting some people to call for a fence to be put up to keep stray camel off roads, Gulf News said.
