Malaysian man en route to visit son in hospital, who is a hit-and-run victim, ends up as a hit-and-run victim himself

MALAYSIA: An elderly Malaysian motorcyclist suffered severe injuries when he was rear-ended by a black Mazda car in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur at 12.47pm on Saturday (16 Sept).

The 66-year-old man was on his way from Gombak to visit his son who had been receiving treatment at the Cheras Rehabilitation Hospital in Kuala Lumpur.

“My father was on his way to visit my brother, who has been bedridden in the hospital since 18 July due to an accident and is still unconscious,” said Mohd Firdaus, the man’s eldest son.

According to a report by Majoriti, Firdaus disclosed that his brother was also a hit-and-run victim.

Regarding the accident involving his father, Firdaus reported that after being hit by the car, his father had to pick himself up and make his way to a nearby hospital, covered in blood.

“Fortunately, there was a car that assisted my father by following him from behind,” he added while mentioning that his father didn’t have the chance to visit his brother due to the accident.

Firdaus stated that his father was still in a weakened state due to the incident and was receiving treatment at Ampang Hospital in Selangor.

“For now, my father has received six stitches on his head.

The doctor also mentioned that there is a possibility of a stroke,” he added.

Firdaus further expressed his frustration at what had happened to his father, as his father’s fate mirrored that of his brother in the incident that occurred in July.

Firdaus stated that a police report had already been filed, but there had been no response from the police regarding the perpetrator, despite providing accident details obtained from a dashcam recording.

He mentioned that, so far, a member of the public had contacted him and informed him that they knew the whereabouts of the perpetrator because they were able to identify the car’s license plate that hit his father.

Regrettably, there was no dashcam footage available to assist in identifying the perpetrator in his brother’s case.

Reflecting on the accident that happened to his brother, Khairul Muzzammir, Firdaus said it occurred around 2.30am in front of the Uptown Sri Gombak interchange heading towards Kuala Lumpur Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2).

“I hope the police take immediate action regarding the incidents that befell my father and brother,” he urged.
