M'sian driver rams into motorcyclist brother in freak accident
A Malaysian driver had the shock of his life when he rammed into a rider who had been flung from a motorcycle from the opposite lane after a collision in Kuantan on Sunday (Nov 30).
But the shock turned to horror and deep sorrow minutes later when he realised the motorcycle across the road was his brother's.
Azhar Husin, 32, whose car rammed into his 37-year-old brother Azhari, was inconsolable, reported Harian Metro.
The accident occurred at around 2pm at the 23km mark of Jalan Kuantan-Sungai Lembing when Azhar, who was driving a Perodua Myvi, hit his brother Azhari as he was flung from the opposite lane after a collision with a Toyota Vios.
A witness, who wanted to be known only as Anuar, 25, said it was heartwrenching to watch Azhar wailing as he held his brother’s body.
“At first, the body was just lying in the middle of the road. But after Azhar recognised his brother’s motorcycle on the other side of the road, he immediately ran to the middle of the road." - Anuar, 25, who saw the incident
“But by then, the victim was already dead,” Anuar was quoted as saying.
Pahang public order and traffic acting chief Deputy Supt Mohamad Noor Yusuf Ali said Azhari died at the scene after sustaining severe injuries on the head and body.
"Checks revealed that the motorcyclist and Perodua Myvi driver are siblings. We have recorded the statement from both the car drivers," he told The New Straits Times.
