The rider then lost control of his motorcycle and fell, before a car that was driving behind him immediately breaks, while the taxi speeds away out of the camera frame. 

The incident allegedly happened at 10:30 am on December 23rd last year, and it appears to be a case of hit-and-run.

The rider was killed in the accident and the next of kin are now seeking public assistance to help them find the taxi driver.

The Info Roadblock JPJ/POLIS Facebook page also shared the taxi’s number plate.
