According to Kuala Lumpur Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department chief ACP Zulkefly Yahya, police had summoned both the drivers involved in the accident that happened on Friday (4 September).

BERNAMA reported that a urine test was performed on the Volvo driver and it turns out that he was positive for drugs.

“An application will be made to remand the Volvo driver for further investigation and that his department will refer the case to the public prosecutor,” said Zulkefly. 

Driving while intoxicated is irresponsible and it’s no joke! You’re endangering the lives of other people, and yourself as well!
