As if a hit-and-run accident was not enough, a BMW driver was recently caught on camera for dishing out a combo of collisions within an hour.
According to a Facebook user, Imran Abdul Jabar, the incident took place on 13 February and his brother was one of the victims by the black BMW on a road near The Mines in Seri Kembangan.
“Alhamdulillah, my brother is okay. The injuries were light. However, his motorcycle and source of income were affected,” he wrote in the caption.
However, the drama did not end there and later that day, 2 other videos of the same vehicle knocking down 2 other motorcyclists on the Sungai Besi Expressway (BESRAYA) had surfaced on the Internet.
Similar to the first incident, the BMW had been driving recklessly into motorcyclists from behind and sped off after they fell to the ground.
According to the time stamp on the dashcam footage, the 2nd and 3rd appears to have happened one after the other within the same minute at 3.57 pm.
Meanwhile, Imran said his family lodged a police report on the same day and hoped the other victims did the same.
On 15 February, the police have successfully tracked down and arrested the BMW driver.
According to Kosmo, Kuala Lumpur Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) deputy chief Supt Zulkafli Chek Lah said the 37-year-old suspect was brought to New Salak South police station for questioning.
“Investigations found that the suspect is a mentally ill patient and has now been detained at the University of Malaya Medical Center’s (UMMC) psychiatric ward,” he said.
The case is being investigated under Section 43 of the Road Transport Act 1987 for reckless driving.
