Driver who crashed into Rolls Royce at Sheraton Doha turned over to police

A young man driving a white Mercedes Benz that careened out of control and smashed into a parked Rolls Royce at the Sheraton Doha yesterday was escorted off the premises by police, the hotel said.

After video footage of the incident went viral last night, the Sheraton acknowledged in a statement to WGO Qatar that a “dangerous incident” took place Sunday morning, adding:

“We can confirm that the individual was not a guest of the hotel and no injuries occurred to any guests or associates. The individual was escorted off the local premises by local authorities.”
