TAPAH: A man has been remanded for three days for investigations after he allegedly drove against the traffic at KM355.4 on the north-bound side of the North-South Highway, near Bidor here, on Wednesday.
Tapah district police chief Supt Wan Azharuddin Wan Ismail said the 34-year-old suspect, a salesman in Port Klang, is being investigated under Section 42(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.
“The three-day remand order was granted by the Tapah Magistrate’s Court today.”
The man was driving a Perodua Axia from Klang, Selangor to Bidor for Deepavali celebration at about 6 pm when he was said to have made a u-turn at the Sungkai exit on seeing a roadblock and then drove against the traffic for 1.4 km on the highway.
Wan Azharuddin said a Toyota Rush and a trailer crashed while trying to avoid the Perodua Axia but no one was injured in the incident.-Bernama
