KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The suspect who allegedly crashed his four-wheel drive vehicle into five people at a hawker site in Pekan Bukit Sentosa, near here Friday (May 22) evening is believed to have been drunk.

Selangor Police Chief Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin said the man, 32, who worked as a tyre wholesaler, caused injury to five people.

He said the man did not have a criminal record and the case was being investigated under Section 307 of the Penal Code and Section 42(11) of the Road Transport Act 1987.

"An application to remand the suspect has been filed and police urge any witnesses at the scene to come forward to help the investigation," he said in a statement on Saturday (May 23).

Noor Azam advised the public not to make any negative assumptions about the incident and to have full confidence in the police to conduct a thorough investigation.

It was reported that a man had been detained after he drove his car wildly at the parking lot, supposedly because he was unhappy with another man who knocked his car's side mirror when he sounded his horn to go through traffic congestion near Jalan Besar Bukit Sentosa.

Videos of the incident went viral on social media, showing a four-wheel-drive vehicle crashing into hawker stalls and people at the Pekan Bukit Sentosa hawker site. – Bernama
