The driver’s unrelenting rush on a highway in Malaysia ended horribly when the collision caused a 2-year-old child to be thrown out of his car.
The incident occurred on Monday (February 10) along the north-south highway to the south in Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia.
A 1-minute video of the incident was uploaded to Facebook on Tuesday (February 11) by the camera owner, who turned out to be the victim’s uncle.
The heartbreaking clip shows two cars – a blue Honda Jazz and a white Perodua Myvi – running fast on the highway.
The white Perodua Myvi crept dangerously among other cars on the road. It tried to pass another vehicle and crashed into that vehicle for a moment before speeding away.
The blue sedan then changed lanes, revealing a 2-year-old child who had fallen on the highway.
Luckily, the car with the camera which recorded the video stopped in time. Thanks to the quick response of it, the baby was lifted off the road.
Although the footage shot via dashcam recorded in 2018, the owner made it clear that because he didn’t set the date on the device, the time was inaccurate. Police confirmed, the incident occurred on Monday afternoon.
According to Astro Awani, the results of the investigation revealed that the victim’s father was driving in the right lane when the white Myvi crashed into them.
The victim’s father lost control of the car, crashed into a median on the highway before crashing into the Myvi – the collision sent the boy flying.
He has minor injuries to his legs and arms and is currently being treated in a hospital.
The 20-year-old driver of the white Perodua Myvi was arrested on Tuesday, while the 23-year-old driver of the blue Honda Jazz surrendered to police, The Star reported.
The investigation of reckless and dangerous driving is still underway.
