PETALING JAYA: A seemingly minor collision between a Honda City and a Mercedes-Benz along Jalan Teknologi 3/1, Kota Damansara here, resulted in the death of one of the drivers.

The 44-year-old driver of the Honda, who was with her two sons and niece, died at the scene of the accident that occurred on Sunday noon.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din said the Honda did not stop before turning into a junction and rammed into the back of a Mercedes-Benz.

One of the first responders at the scene said the driver and passenger airbags were deployed following the collision.

Sungai Buloh Fire and Rescue Department Senior Officer II Rosdi Hainan said that the driver’s airbag was found ruptured and that she could have sustained injuries to her chest from material protruding from the centre of the steering wheel. 

“There was blood in the car when we inspected it. Medical personnel from Hospital Sungai Buloh said she was barely alive when help arrived. She died at the scene. Her three passengers were not hurt,” he said.

Rosdi said that the Mercedes driver and his wife escaped uninjured.

A team of firefighters from the Sungai Buloh station led by Rosdi arrived at the scene at about 12.10pm after receiving a distress call.

ACP Zani said that the cause of death has yet to be determined pending post-mortem results. There was only minor damage to the Honda.
