Fatal Accident at Slim River PLUS Hiway .Need to bring RM4k to court. Is this real?
Hi all,
I am writing this story on behalf of a close friend of mine.

Last year Oct 2010,his father (65 yr old) was driving at around 9am from KL heading towards Ipoh.

At KM 313 (I think), Northbound, suddenly a PLUS worker dashed in front of the hiway to get to his van parked opposite the 4 lane hiway or so the situation was.

The PLUS worker a 70plus elderly man was instantly killed with his right leg severely cut. Obviously he was trying to cross the hiway. Then the police didn't charge the driver as from the findings the investigating officer (Inspector rank) could not rule out reckless driving and there was no witness.

Needless to say his car was damaged beyond repair as he hit the right hiway metal railing while braking hard and violently swerved the steering right. The car I think now is a total loss.

Then the deceased family made the insurance claim thru a lawyer and the insurance co (MAA) already settled the claim of RM6k out of RM10k demanded due to no fault on the driver as the deceased was trying to cross the road without proper cones or signage.

yesterday the inspector called his father again saying that he is now required to attend the Slim River court.Just by phone call? And there was no letter or summon what so ever since then. The inspector also told him to meet in person and bring RM4k cash just in case he got locked up.

Is this true? Or is this another case of scam or another dishonest policeman trying to make quick buck? Is there such a process? Is his father guilty?

From the keputusan case it was clearly the driver is not charged and not guilty according to the insurance lawyer who settled all the claims.

So if there are any lawyers here or someone who had experienced similar problems, could you kindly advice on the next course of action for my friend's father?

many thanks.

My advice is not to respond unless with the proper court document. Talk to your lawyer. Ask them (the police) to provide with the court document. The SOP is, the court will send the letter directly to OKT (orang kena tuduh), in this case to your friend father.

A close frined was conned in a similar case, except that it involves a bank. Just to summarize matters.

- Got call from bank, saying that she owe credit card RM20+K and is going to court.

- She wasn't sure and asked to veryify. The man told her to call 103 to verify if the number in which he was calling from is from Bank Negara. Said that he would call her back.

- She called telekom and indeed the number on he Caller ID (CLI) was from Bankk Negara.

- He called her back, after some negos and persuasion, got her to transfer the money to that personal account (Public Bank)

- Did the transfer.

- By this time, I called in and had a chat with her. She told me of what happened and I adviced her to call Bank Negara herself to verify matters.

- 15 mins later, Bank Negara told her no such matters, went to Public Bank to verify the transfer and was told that the money has been already withdrawn out.

- Mu guess... Someone has some contacts inside telekoms and is using the tapped lines to make calls. For the gullible, they will buy anything and so is the case for my frined.


Be careful mate, always verify with a 3rd party from the same police station of court.

my take:-

i) only the court can decide whether a party is guilty or not. so far, there 's no such ruling in the case. the police in this case has refrained from commiting any charges (just to be on the safe side).

ii) no witness, no problem, there are road safety experts. They can determine if the car was speeding, the impact angle etc. This will determine if the defendant is lying.

iii) insurance company make out payment for whatever the victims are covered e.g. accident insurance covers lost of arms etc. so long it is proven that there has been a legitimate loss of arm, payment will be made.


iv) 4k is bailout money.


Yes, your friend's father needed to attend court. In Malaysia, it is very long winded process.

looks like there's a pending court case...the case is not yet close.

your friend should get his lawyer to check or verify with the courts...

There is something fishy about it.
Yes, SOP, he will receive a letter from court or pdrm asking to either hadir mahkamah or balai polis. The letter will state clearly which place he should go.
In ur fren case,
I personally think it's a fraud. Don't go there at all, more over bringing the money.
Does he still have the number which the person claim from pdrm?? If yes, go to the nearest police station, do a report. Don't worry, tell the inquiry staffs that what actually happen. They will help to check whether both the number and also the case whether is settled or not.
Hope this helps ur fren.

Please ask him to bring all necessary documents about the accident as well. Just to clarify it once and for all.

Hi all,
Thanks for all your replies. Have thought so too myself.

Anyway last I was told they have asked a lawyer to check out the matter.

The findings were that it could be 2 possibilities:

1) The deceased family wanted to press charges even though the keputusan kes was 100% negligence on the deceased side. Is this still possible to press charges?

2)The RM4k was for the police (no wild accusations here) to settle the case outside of court and the money to be given to the deceased wife or family (of course with some % to the inspector-we all know how police in Mysia work, it is an open secret here)

But anyhow if they were criminal charges (Section 41(1) Road transport act 1957 amended 1987) which according to the lawyer is very slim for them to win because it was no fault on the driver and it happened on the PLUS highway. You are not supposed to cross the hiway anyway.

The lawyer will try to put aside the charges as there is clearly no case here. Besides the insurance co already paid out RM10k 6mnths ago to the deceased wife. This is purely money making by the deceased party or maybe a plot played by parties involved. That is what his lawyer thinks.

Hopefully this case will be closed for good.

thanks everyone for your input.
