The police officers then ordered the driver of the Naza Citra to stop for inspection. However, the 15 year-old driver attempted to escape and they ramped into the police patrol car while they were on the run.

“The Naza Citra then fled towards Section 10, Wangsa Maju and another multipurpose vehicle (MPV) patrol car continued to chase the vehicle for about 30 minutes.”

“While on the MRR2, the driver tried to make a U-turn and reversed their vehicle. They then collided with the MPV patrol car.” he said.

Mohamad Farouk said the investigation found that the driver and passenger, aged between 15 and 19, had no previous criminal record.

“The teenager tried to escape because he did not have a license and there were no reports of the vehicle he was driving being stolen.”

“The urine test also found that the driver was not under the influence of drugs.” he said.

He added that no injuries were reported and the case was investigated under Rule 10 of Road Transport and the driver was charged with two summonses.

“The summons was issued under Section 15 (1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 (no driving license/not covered by insurance) and Section 55 (refusing to stop a vehicle driven or ridden) of the same act.” he said.
