PETALING JAYA: Police have denied that an accident where a driver of a luxury car had allegedly hit a motorcyclist before speeding away was a hit and run.

Commenting on the video of the supposed ‘hit and run’ that had gone viral on Facebook, Kuala Lumpur traffic chief ACP Rusli Mohd Noor said the video was misleading and did not tell the whole story.

“I wonder where people are getting the news that this accident was a hit and run.

“The driver had lodged a report on the very same day of the accident.” he said when contacted on Thursday.

He added that it may be a possible that the video was cut off before netizens were able to see the unfolding of events.

A video footage of the alleged hit and run incident surfaced on Facebook, causing an uproar among denizens of the social networking web site.

Facebook users were outraged that no one came to help the motorcyclist who was knocked off his bike by a speeding E92 white BMW.

Some went as far as to condemn the person recording the video for not lodging a police report against the driver.
