KUALA LUMPUR: The family members of Yap Mee Ling are praying for her swift recovery after a hit and run incident left the 48-year-old accounts executive with severe head injuries.
In Friday's incident, Mee Ling was walking to her office located near Wisma Tun Sambanthan from Wisma Pahlawan, Jalan Sultan Sulaiman, around 6.45am when a car allegedly rammed into her.
Her sister, 47-year-old Yap Mee Kuen, said the driver sped off after crashing into Mee Ling.
"We received a call from Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) around 8.45am alerting us about the incident," said Mee Kuen, who was working in the same insurance company as her sister.
The deputy manager added that Mee Ling had since undergone two surgeries since Friday but was still in critical condition.
"We were told that she is suffering from multiple bleeding and a fractured skull," said Mee Kuen when contacted on Sunday.
Their 76-year-old mother, Lai Ah Lun was informed about the accident but the severity of Mee Ling's injuries were omitted from her.
"Our mother is a stroke patient and has a heart condition. I worry that her health may worsen if she were to know about my sister's injuries," said Mee Kuen.
The Yap family are asking witnesses to come forward and assist them in tracking down the driver.
"We urge the public to come to us with any information they might have on the accident," said Mee Kuen, while adding that a police report was lodged on Saturday.
