The driver tried to run away by running up the slope (accident happen near the nursery under the Jalan Duta flyover, Hartamas side near Istana Negara). The driver claimed he was trying to retrieve his phone that has dropped onto the floor. By doing that, he swerve from his lane to the opposite lane.
If there were another car/vehicle, the accident would had been major.
It also appeared (from those that were there on Sunday) that the 4wd roadtax has expired. This meant insurance claim against the driver or vehicle owner will not be possible.
When I read about this, It angers me. My wife was hit by a distracted motorcyclist last year October. She suffered and still recovering from the accident with the backache a constant bother nowadays due to compression of the spine at T10.
The victim of this accident, Ms. Lai, was rushed to GH and were reported to be under went operation to remove blood clot and is warded at intensive neuro unit.

AND HE TRIED TO RUN AWAY BY RUNNING UP THE SLOPE
Lets all pray for Ms. Lai's recovery and the driver to be charged for attempted murder.
I would also like to remind all friends, family and readers here to STOP using your handphone while driving. Those Facebook updates, Tweets and Instagrams can wait. The Whatapps messages, WeChat etc will not expire if you reply when you reach your destination. Being distracted puts you and those on the road at high risk. You may say you have been doing this and nothing happen - PLEASE DO NOT WAIT for something to happen before deciding what you did was IDIOTIC and STUPIDITY at it's highest degree.
ENGINE ON. PHONE OFF.
