DAP state rep hurt in 4WD accident at toll plaza

Damansara Utama assemblyman Dr Cheah Wing Yin fractured both his legs and the little finger on his right hand when he was involved in an accident at the Batu Tiga toll plaza in Shah Alam last night.

Selangor Public Order and Traffic chief Supt Che Husin Omar, when contacted by Bernama, said in the 10am incident, said Dr Cheah's four-wheel drive (4WD) suddenly broke down about 300m from the SmartTag lane at the toll plaza.

He said the DAP assemblyman then got down and was heading to the rear of the vehicle when another 4WD knocked into him and his 4WD.

"Initial investigations found the driver of the other vehicle had tried to avoid him but failed to make it in time.

"Dr Cheah was rushed to the Sunway Medical Centre for treatment.

Both vehicles were badly damaged," he said, adding that the driver of the other vehicle was unhurt.

Witnesses are urged to contact the traffic division of the Shah Alam police headquarters to assist investigations.
