KUALA SELANGOR: Police are waiting for several reports for their investigation papers (IP) over the Hulu Selangor drunk driver case.

Five people were injured after the driver of a pickup truck ran amok and drove wildly, knocking into bystanders at a parking lot in Bukit Sentosa where food stalls had been set up on May 22.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Fadzil Ahmat said the suspect's remand would end on Wednesday (May 27).

"The IP is almost complete and we are just waiting for documents including the official report on injuries sustained by all the victims during the incident, the suspect's blood test report as well as authenticity reports on the passport belonging to the suspect's girlfriend.

"We have yet to establish the motive for the incident but we believe the suspect was under the influence of alcohol during the incident," he told reporters at Kuala Selangor police headquarters on Tuesday (May 26).

It was reported that police had remanded the man for allegedly ramming five people with his pickup truck at a hawker site in Pekan Bukit Sentosa.

The suspect, 32, a tyre wholesaler, does not have a criminal record and the case is being investigated under Section 307 of the Penal Code and Section 42(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.

Police have 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.

The suspect is believed to have lost his temper when a man knocked his car's side mirror when he sounded his horn during a traffic congestion near Jalan Besar Bukit Sentosa.

Videos of the incident have gone viral on social media, showing a four-wheel-drive vehicle ramming into hawker stalls and people at the Pekan Bukit Sentosa hawker site.
