A family is looking for the driver of a red Perodua Myvi responsible for a hit-and-run accident in Cheras, Selangor that sent their son to the hospital
According to Media Prima Berhad journalist Mohd Redzuan Abdul Manap on Twitter, the accident occurred on Jalan Suadamai in Bandar Tun Hussein Onn around 5.30pm on Monday, 5 October.
Two riders on a motorcycle were coming from the direction of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Bandar Tun Hussein Onn 2 when they could not stop in time to avoid a red Perodua Myvi doing an illegal U-turn on the straight road and crashed right into it.
A video of the accident was since shared by one of the victim's family members showing that the Myvi had driven away after the crash and left both victims on the ground.
The accident resulted in serious, internal injuries to the motorcycle passenger and minor injuries to the rider
Mohd Redzuan reported that the passenger is currently being treated in Kajang Hospital.
The rider lodged a police report regarding the accident the next day on 6 October, but noted that the driver accountable for the accident has yet to step forward.
According to the Media Prima journalist, the owner of the car has been identified through initial investigations but the police are still in the midst of tracking them down.
The hospitalised victim's father and aunt has since taken to social media to request the help of the public to find the driver responsible
"Please help us to find this Myvi, guys! My nephew is still unconscious. Can't believe you had the heart to do that. He lost his spleen because of you!" pleaded the aunt on Twitter.
Meanwhile, the father revealed the car plate number of the Myvi - VAE 3843 - on Instagram and also asked for help to track down the driver.
