Mat Rempit Dies, Injures Another Person in Illegal Race

  • A Mat Rempit died while a “spectator” was seriously injured in an illegal race.

  • The PDRM are now hunting for the other two “racers.”

  • The videos show the accident and aftermath.

A Mat Rempit killed another motorcyclist and injured another during an illegal race in Kota Bahru, Kelantan on Saturday (18th August 2018).

As shown the video, a large crowd had gathered to spectate an illegal race. Two bikes blew by followed by a third a few seconds afterwards.  The third bike then struck a pedestrian who had stepped onto the “track”.

The motorcyclist, Norazrin Azizan Abdul Aziz, 26, died while receiving emergency treatment at Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia (HUSM) in Kubang Kerian. The pedestrian, Mohd. Azhan Baharudin, 25, had both his legs broken and is now lying unconscious at the same hospital.

The Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) are now hunting for the other two illegal racers. Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (Jabatan Siasatan dan Penguatkuasaan Trafik) Director, Datuk Sharul Othman Mansor said that the two were complicit in causing the death of Norazrin and bodily harm to Mohd. Azhan.

He continued, “The two motorcyclists are wanted for investigation under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.”

Datuk Sharul made the announcement at a media conference codenamed as “Operasi Samseng Jalan (Operation Road Hooligans)” which he headed at Seremban last night.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
