A local driving instructor has died after he and his 17-year-old student got into a fatal accident yesterday, 4 January
According to the New Straits Times, the duo was travelling in a Perodua Viva outside of a driving school at Jalan Ampang Pecah, Kuala Kubu Baru when another Viva crashed into their vehicle.
The victim, 45-year-old Zainal Azman Mohd Nadzir, had just left the school with his student for a training routine when they were rear-ended by another car around 2.45pm
According to Hulu Selangor OCPD Supt R. Supramaniam, their vehicle was allegedly rear-ended by another Viva coming from the Kuala Kubu Bharu township.
“The incident took place in front of PS Samy Driving School. A Perodua Viva coming from Kuala Kubu Baru town had rammed into the Viva,” he said as quoted by the New Straits Times.
A rescue team was quickly dispatched to the location after a distress call was made to the Kuala Kubu Baru fire station
The team took about 10 minutes to free Zainal from his seat and he was quickly sent to the nearest hospital. Unfortunately, he succumbed to his injuries two hours later.
The student suffered minor injuries while the other driver escaped unhurt.
The case is currently being investigated under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for reckless driving
Speaking of which, the government has apparently rolled out a mobile courtroom (MCR) to punish road offenders instantly:
