Two Days Remand for Woman who Crossed Road and Caused Death of Motorcyclist

The 35-year-old woman who stopped the vehicle she was driving before crossing the road on foot and causing the death of a motorcyclist has been remanded for two days.

Temerloh District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Mazlan Hassan, said the passenger of the female vehicle involved, a 37-year-old Chinese man, was also remanded for three days to assist in the investigation.

“They were remanded from today for further investigation following the accident that involved the death of a man at the scene of the incident,” he said when contacted today.

In an incident at about 4pm yesterday at KM98.6 East Coast Highway 1 (LPT1) in the East direction, a 34-year-old man who worked as a musician at the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) died after the high-powered motorcycle he was riding crashed into a Mitsubishi Triton pickup.

Preliminary investigation found that the accident occurred as soon as the pickup driver hit the brakes after the woman driving a Mitsubishi Pajero jeep stopped on the left shoulder of the road before crossing to the right of the road.

“At the same time, the Suzuki GSX-R1000 type motorcycle that the victim was riding came from behind hit the pickup, before the victim fell in the fast lane while his motorcycle was thrown into the back of the vehicle,” he said.

The case is being investigated under Section 304(A) of the Penal Code for negligence causing death, he said.

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."
