The suspect surrendered himself at Kajang traffic police station after finding out what happened to the victim on the news.
The man accused of causing the fatal crash which resulted in the death of a motorcyclist on the elevated Sungai Besi-Ulu Klang Expressway (SUKE) highway has surrendered himself to the police.
Ampang Jaya district police chief Azam Ismail said the suspect, 41, came forward and lodged a report at the Kajang traffic police station yesterday (16 June).
Azam said the suspect was temporarily released so he could recover from his injuries.
According to the police statement, the suspect, who’s a food vendor, was on his way home to Kajang from Ampang but got lost so he decided to enter the SUKE highway and rode against the traffic.
The suspect then collided with the 62-year-old victim, Ahmad Fadzil Omar Azzadin, who rode a Ducati Panigale motorcycle.
It was at this moment that the victim hit the left divider and fell over the exit ramp on the highway. The victim was found lying face down near a Sungai Klang SMART control station and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The suspect fell off his bike and broke his right shoulder and a finger, and sustained some bruises on his shoulder and leg.
He went home after the incident and only realized what had truly happened to the victim after he saw the news on television and social media.
To date, police have recorded statements from six witnesses, including the suspect and seized a Yamaha motorcycle belonging to the suspect.
Earlier today, the victim’s son, Hafidz Ahmad Fadzil, 36, urged the motorcyclist who caused the accident to step forward and apologize to his mother.
He was also upset that the suspect fled the scene without calling for help for his father.
