DUBAI - A driver opened fire on a car driven by a US citizen in northern Saudi Arabia after crashing into his vehicle, but there were no casualties, Saudi state news agency SPA reported late on Wednesday.

It was not immediately clear if the incident was a deliberate attack on the American or just a case of road rage.

"The Tabuk police received a report at around 1300 (1000 GMT) that a car driven by a resident American citizen had been subjected to a crash and shooting from the driver of the other vehicle while driving on a road in the city of Tabuk," SPA quoted the local police chief as saying.

"There were no injuries but the car was damaged by the accident and shooting," it added.
