Porsche rams parked cars, owners furious

SEPANG: Three cars were damaged after a suspected drunk driver drove his sports car into them.

Sepang OCPD Asst Comm Wan Kamarul Azran Wan Yusof said that the incident occurred at a valet parking lot in IOI City Mall early yesterday.

“Investigations showed that the Porsche driver was driving from Le Meridien Putrajaya to Cheras. At the parking lot, he crashed into a road divider and lost control, leading to a collision with three other cars.

“Three of the four car owners have had their statements recorded and the fourth has been contacted. A urine and blood sample will be taken for testing,” he said when contacted yesterday.

The case is being investigated for drink driving under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act.

Meanwhile, by the last day of Op Selamat 19 on Friday, the total number of accidents had breached the 1,000 mark.

A total of 1,389 accidents involving 1,711 vehicles had been recorded, said Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department director Datuk Mat Kasim Karim in a statement yesterday.

The breakdown showed that 1,140 of the vehicles involved were cars – or 66.62% of the total accidents recorded.

A further 211 4WDs (four-wheel drives) and 250 motorcycles were also involved in accidents during Op Selamat 19, making up 12.33% and 14.61%, respectively, of recorded accidents.
