Accidents usually occur because of human error or because of environmental factors. However, it is rare for someone to get hurt because of something that cannot be seen with the naked eye while on the road.

Recently, a motorist who was travelling along the Sungai Besi-Ulu Klang Expressway (SUKE) was injured due to a stretched thread across the road.

The incident was shared by the victim on his Twitter page.

According to the victim, he suffered an injury on the chin due to the stretched thread.

This incident happened two days ago (13 May) at about 6.30pm.

Later the post was also shared by Lembah Jaya assemblyman Syed Ahmad Syed Abdul Rahman Alhadad also known as Altimet who said that he would follow up on the matter with the Ampang Jaya police.

According to Ampang Jaya police chief Azam Ismail who verified the accident, it happened near SUKE after the Taman Kosas exit, as reported by FMT.

Azam urged the victim to lodge a report at the closest police station.

On his Twitter page, the victim informed that he would be meeting up with the police today.

To take further action, the police will meet with the SUKE highway operator and carry out a preliminary investigation in the interim.

He also asked any witnesses to get in touch with the police.

SUKE also issued a statement in which they said they are prepared to fully cooperate with the investigation and advised the victim to report anything in writing to the police.

The highway operator also said that it will be stepping up patrols along the motorway and that any risky behaviour, including kite flying, will be immediately reported to the police.

“We will also work closely with local residents’ associations to enhance safety measures and prevent such incidents,” it said.

“We would like to emphasise that the safety of our users and neighbouring residents is of paramount importance to us,” SUKE operator Prolintas said in the statement.
