GEORGE TOWN (Bernama): Investigation papers on the accident, which claimed the life of Moey Yun Peng after his sports utility vehicle (SUV) plunged into the sea following a collision with a car last week, was sent to the Deputy Public Prosecutor's office on Monday (Jan 28).

Penang police chief Datuk T. Narenasagaran said they would wait for further instructions from the DPP regarding the case, which also involved the driver of the other vehicle.

“We did not include the chemical report regarding the drug and alcohol content levels found on the 21-year-old car driver as we have yet to get it,” he told reporters after attending hi-tea with the agencies involved in the search and rescue operations for the SUV here.

He added that Moey's blood sample had also been sent to the Chemistry Department to be tested for drugs and alcohol.

In the 2.54am accident on Jan 20, the SUV driven by Moey, 20, a private college student, plunged into the sea after colliding with the car at KM4 of the Penang Bridge heading towards Prai.

The SUV was hoisted out of the sea by crane two days later, with the deceased still in the driver's seat. - Bernama
