(MENAFN - Arab News) A man found guilty of causing an accident that killed six members of the Al-Dehaim family in Al-Yasmin neighborhood in Riyadh during the Eid Al-Adha holiday, says he cannot bear to live anymore because of the tragedy.

Mohammed said he lost all will to live when he heard that the sixth victim of the crash died early last month. Norah Al-Dehaim, a young girl, was buried in November in Riyadh. The crash had earlier claimed the lives of her uncle and four aunts.

"What's happening to me is greater than anyone can bear. It pains me that people blame me and say I deliberately killed those innocent souls. I've stopped eating and taking medication for three days. I continuously ask for God's forgiveness," he told a local daily.

Mohamed spoke candidly about the challenges he has faced over the years including being infected with HIV 15 years ago when he was 26 years old.

He said that his family rejected him when they discovered he was HIV positive. "I found myself homeless on the streets for three months, until I admitted myself to the Riyadh Medical Complex for treatment."

Before this treatment he had turned to drugs to ease the pain of being rejected by his family and community. However, this only worsened his mental and physical state, he said.

Eventually, he decided to turn his life around and volunteered to help people living with HIV and AIDS. He said that he was able to help people improve their health under the program.

Mohammed then started searching for a wife. He found a job with a good salary. He rented a house, and began to plan his marriage to a woman who was also infected with HIV. He had found this person through a social worker who worked to bring infected people together.

"While driving around in the car owned by my company one night, my vehicle swerved and hit another car, causing it to flip over with all its passengers."

Mohammed lost consciousness. When he woke up, he was shocked to discover that five members of the Al-Dehaim family had died in the crash. A further blow was to follow when another victim died a few days later.
