A young man was almost drag and killed by a trailer while he was inflating his motorcycle tire at a petrol station in Bandar Sultan Seleiman at 8.30am, 23 November.
Video footage of the incident has since gone viral on social media.
In the 23-second footage, the man can be seen kneeling down next to his motorcycle inflating air to the tires when a trailer suddenly carelessly made a turn to exit the petrol station which then hit the victim and dragged him on the floor.
The victim’s right leg was almost dragged by the trailer, which could have pulled him under the trailer tire and crushed him. Thankfully the victim managed to pull himself away in time.
North Klang District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner S Vijaya Rao said, during the initial investigation, the trailer was driven by a 35-year-old woman.
“As a result of the violation, the 29-year-old male motorcyclist was pushed to the left and almost rolled over,” he said, adding that the motorcyclist suffered minor injuries and was receiving treatment at a private medical center.
“The motorcyclists involved will be present to make a report after receiving treatment. The driver of the trailer did not suffer any injuries,” he said.
He said the case was still under investigation to identify the real cause of the incident.
