PETALING JAYA: The King once again showed his caring side when he stopped his motorcade to check on an accident victim while en route to an event.

Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah was on the way to officiate an exhibition at the Royal Museum (Muzium DiRaja) on Monday (Aug 5), when his convoy came across a car that had crashed by the side of the road at 10.45am.

Istana officials said he saw a Toyota Vios had collided with the guardrail along the slip road leading to the Sultan Abdul Halim highway near Jalan Duta.

Videos on the Istana Negara's official Instagram page showed Sultan Abdullah getting out of the car and asking the female victim if she was okay.

His motorcade, including uniformed guards, stopped and waited as he spent a few minutes talking to her.

Raja Permaisuri Agong, Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah, was also riding with him but stayed in the car.

After making sure that everyone was safe, Sultan Abdullah returned to his vehicle and resumed his drive to the Royal Museum.

On June 26, Sultan Abdullah was seen offering help to an accident victim when he was on his way to a pre-cabinet meeting with the Prime Minister.

Malaysians said they were touched by the King's humility.
