Police nab lorry driver seen in viral Federal Highway road rage video

PETALING JAYA: A lorry driver was arrested on Friday (May 26) after a road rage video went viral on social media, says Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Fakhrudin Abdul Majid.

"We initially detected a video about the road rage incident on social media on the same day and started our investigations. The video shows a trailer truck driving recklessly and weaving through traffic,” said ACP Mohamad Fakhrudin.

"The lorry is also seen coming to a complete halt and blocking traffic along the Federal Highway and the exit to the Subang toll plaza," he said in a statement on Saturday (May 27).

"Based on our checks, the incident occurred at around 5pm on Thursday (May 25).

"Both motorists involved were identified and the lorry driver was arrested on Friday after a urine test came back positive for methamphetamines," he said.

Mohd Fakhrudin added that the lorry driver has been remanded until May 30 to help with the investigation.

He said police have classified the case as one of reckless driving and consumption of dangerous drugs.

"We want to remind all road users to always abide by the traffic regulations to avoid accidents. We will not compromise with anyone who drives in a dangerous manner," he said, adding that stern action would be taken against those who break the law.
