KOTA KINABALU: Police have yet to make an arrest over an incident where a taxi driver went amok at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport on Monday (July 19) and rammed a row of vehicles.

Acting Kota Kinabalu OCPD Supt George Rakman said the case is being investigated for reckless driving.

"The driver involved is still receiving treatment at the hospital but a brief statement has been taken," he said without elaborating further.

In the incident, the taxi driver allegedly rammed into several vehicles after a misunderstanding. However, no one was hurt.

Videos of the incident went viral over social media.

It is learnt that a few drivers whose vehicles were damaged may not take legal action against the taxi driver and are now discussing how to resolve the matter, including coming up with funds for repairs.

KKIA Limousine and Taxi Association president Shamsuddin Mohd Shah said the driver is known to have come under a lot of stress recently.

He added that the driver also recovered from a stroke recently and is undergoing treatment for a kidney ailment.
