Recalling the incident in the early morning, the woman said that when he was returning from the house of the brother-in-law in Kent Road, here to his home in Selayang Heights and during the three-lane highway, he trailed a Mitsubishi Pajero vehicle type is black in the middle lane.
Rosmaliza said the Pajero when approaching a bend, he saw from the rearview mirror there is some light vehicles cross the left and right, and the cars were cut on the right side while a Myvi car behind the car.
“Myvi was approaching my car, I decided to give way and go to the left but at the same time that white Myvi also want to get to the left. I then went back to the middle lane and saw another yellow Myvi also cut me in the right lane , “he said.
The witness said he saw not long after the yellow Myvi is in a state such as hover in the right lane and hit the right side of the Pajero, which was in front of him in the middle lane.
The witness said he then slow down and stop the car before taking the decision to get out of the car after overhearing someone told there was a baby on the way.
Rosmaliza said that when he saw the white Myvi stop and stay in the left lane but did not see the yellow Myvi and when approaching the baby in the middle of the road, the baby does not move and does not emit any sound.
“At that time, the baby was not moving but his eyes looked at me. I lift his head … at the same time the blood out of his mouth and nose and I just said, ‘strong baby, baby wait,” he said.
Rosmaliza said she left the baby after several other individuals at the scene shifted the baby to the roadside and called for an ambulance and the police.
Replying to Suhaimi, Rosmaliza said he was sure that the Myvi white Pajero breaking it is the same Myvi up behind him in the middle lane before it, because when the incident, only a Myvi car was in the Duke Highway.
He was also asked to make identification and told the court that he indeed can recognize the driver who drove the white Myvi.
“The reason I almost want to punch him (at the scene), one for babies (Firuza Nur Annisa) and second because he did not confess he hit (Pajero) at the time,” he said.

Pajero was leaning to right when struck by white Myvi, says chemist
The Mitsubishi Pajero involved in a fatal crash on the Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE) on May 2 was leaning to the right when it was hit by a white Perodua Myvi, the Traffic Court heard today.
Mohd Amir Husna Nik Alli@Zulkifli of the Chemistry Department said the analysis was based on physical examination of the black Pajero.
“Traces of white paint were found ground into the bottom of the black Pajero. The white Myvi hit the Pajero, which was leaning to the right,” he said during re-examination by Deputy Public Prosecutor Nadiah Malek Fauzi.
Cross-examined by Mohammad Fizal’s counsel S.N. Seelan, Mohd Amir said he was only assigned to examine the exterior of vehicles involved in the accident.
“I did not examine the interior of the vehicles. I only examine the interior when necessary,” said the chemist, the fifth prosecution witness in the case.

The amended charge read that the pair stood accused of causing the death by reckless driving of Fairuz Nizam Husain, 35, his wife Nova Safitri Azhari, 27, and their daughter Nur Firuza Annisa, aged six months.
They allegedly committed the offence at KM6 on the DUKE (from Ulu Klang to Jalan Duta) between 12.31am and 12.35am on May 2.
The original charge sheet stated that they committed the offence at 1.05am on May 2.

Magistrate’s court issues ‘gag order’ on fatal Duke Highway accident (video)
KUALA LUMPUR, June 22, 2015:
The magistrate’s court here has granted a gag order to prevent anyone from speaking or making unsubstantiated statements on the fatal accident on the Duke Highway that killed a couple and their seven-month-old infant daughter last month.
Magistrate Noorul Fhaiez Mohd Nayan issued the gag order and warned anyone, including the media, from making or reporting irresponsible or baseless statements until the case was closed.
Earlier, lawyer Cantius Leo Camoens, who is representing the family of the deceased, submitted the application for a gag order following a baseless statement made by “Belia Benci Yana Familia MyVi Club” on Facebook.
“According to the post, it was claimed that the case had been settled out of court amicably without police or court intervention.
“We hope that the court can issue a gag order to prevent those irresponsible from making these baseless rumours,” he told the court here this morning.
Camoens later told reporters that the gag order was necessary as the posting had put the family in a bad light, and therefore, the order was meant to protect the family members of the deceased from needless hurt.
Court orders public, media to stop speculating on DUKE accident
The public and mass media have been ordered to refrain from making erroneous statements about the Duta-Ulu Klang Expressway (DUKE) accident on May 2 which claimed the lives of three family members.
Magistrate Noorul Fhaiez Mohd Nayan made the order which was applied by counsel C. Leo Camoens who is holding a watching brief for the victims’ family, at the Traffic Court in Kuala Lumpur today.
The lawyer had cited a Facebook posting by “Belia Benci Yana Familia Club” which claimed that the case against two individuals allegedly responsible for the tragedy had already been disposed of without the police or court’s involvement.
“The statement was offensive to the victim’s family,” he said at the re-mention today of the case for two Myvi drivers Siti Noor Aini Mohd Said, 36, and Mohammad Fizal Reza Jamauddin, 31.
The magistrate set July 31 for another re-mention after deputy public prosecutor Nadia Malek Fauzie said she had not yet received the post-mortem report and the chemist’s report.
He added that the club had urged all its members to remove the stickers for their own safety.
Azrul said that Myvi users who were not members of the club were also affected by the incident.

Probe into Duke crash ‘90pc’ done, says KL traffic police chief
KUALA LUMPUR, May 5 — Investigations into the deadly crash on the Duta-Ulu Klang Expressway (Duke) that killed a family of three is nearing completion, according to city traffic police chief Datuk Mohd Fuad Abd Latiff.
In a statement disputing Deputy Home Minister Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi’s remark that there was heavy speculation over the incident, Fuad said that the cause of the crash was clear and that the only issue still undetermined was whether the Perodua Myvis involved were racing prior to the mishap.
“I would like to clarify that no party is disputing how the accident happened. All over social media, the issue being disputed is the racing activity at such high speeds that it caused a fatal accident.
“The traffic branch of PDRM has conducted its investigations from all angles, taking into account how the crash happened and identifying several individuals involved who caused the accident. The investigation into the case is 90 per cent complete,” Fuad said.
He also added that the involvement of the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (Miros) in the investigation — as ordered by Abdul Aziz — was unnecessary as the group’s role was limited to examining how roads could be made safer.

Familia Myvi Club may be deregistered if involved in Duke crash, says RoS
KUALA LUMPUR, May 5 — The Familia Myvi Club (FMC) may be deregistered if it was involved in the car crash on the Duke highway last weekend that killed a couple and their baby, the Registrar of Societies (RoS) has said.
RoS director-general Mohammad Razin Abdullah was quoted by local daily Berita Harian today as saying that if the registered motoring club had broken any laws, it would be deregistered.
“Each club and organisation has to be approved by RoS after undergoing thorough inspection with us, including the purpose and aim of starting the club.
“If the application is against the law or can disrupt public peace, it will not be approved by the RoS,” Razin was quoted saying.
However, Razin reportedly said if the fatal crash was caused by an individual, the blame would fall on the person instead of the club and appropriate action would be taken.
“If this was done by an individual, it would not be fair to the club as it is not their fault. Similar to the FMC case, we will have to wait for the police investigation before any action is taken,” he said.

DUKE accident: Victims’ family forgives, but demands justice
KUALA LUMPUR: The family of the victims of an accident on the Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE) say they have forgiven the drivers of the Myvi vehicles that purportedly caused their loved ones’ deaths, but still want to see justice done.
“I have to forgive them and our family forgives them too,” said Faizznur Asyraf Husain, the brother of victim Fairuz Nizam Husain.
It was an uncomfortable meeting between the victims’ family and three members of the Familia Myvi Club (FMC) who visited the family home in Batu Caves to meet Fairuz’s two orphaned daughters and to pay respects to the dead.
The group, represented by Hairul Safuan, also brought along essentials like rice, sugar and coffee for the family and also gave an unspecified amount in cash donation to Nur Firuza Amira, seven, and Nur Firuza Akila, three.
The group told reporters that they have pledged to look after the girls’ welfare until they turn 18.
“They came at about 5pm and spoke with us until 7.30pm. They weren’t the ones racing on the highway that night, just club members.
“They paid respects to my brother and his family and told their side of the story,” he said.
The 25-year-old said that he would now look after Nur Firuza Amira and Nur Firuza Akila.

DUKE crash: Myvi club pledges to financially support orphaned sisters
KUALA LUMPUR: The Myvi club, which is being investigated for allegedly causing the accident that killed three people from the same family on the Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE), has pledged to look after the welfare of the family’s two surviving daughters.
Members of the Familia Myvi Club (FMC) visited the home of deceased couple Fairuz Nizam Husain and Nova Safitri Azhari in Batu Caves at about 5pm Sunday to meet with the victims’ family members.
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, FMC representative Hairul Safuan said that members of the automotive club had expressed their condolences to the bereaved family and explained their side of the story.
“We want to clear our names. After the incident, a few of our members received threatening messages on Facebook and WhatsApp. These strangers threatened to beat our members up when they see them or smash their cars,” he said.
Hairul said he spoke with Fairuz Nizam’s brother Faizznur Asyraf, and told him that the club had collectively agreed to sponsor the couple’s orphaned daughters Nur Firuza Amira, seven, and Nur Firuza Akila, three, until they turn 18.
“We discussed and have agreed to pool our money together and fund the girls’ welfare until they reach the age of 18. We have also given a donation to the family.
“We are cooperating with the police and the family of the victims during the investigation. If it is found out that there are members in our club that have done wrong, we will not cover up for them,” Hairul said.

We were not racing, claim Myvi club members
“Don’t believe what is being distributed online,” a representative of the club said.
“They do not know what actually happened. Our club is being criticised by other clubs, but we who were at the scene know the truth,” she said.
The female driver of the Myvi which crashed into the victims’ vehicle has also reportedly told police that it was the Pajero which had swerved into her lane and caused her to lose control of her car.
In her police report, the 35-year-old claimed that she was travelling from Danau Kota towards Mont Kiara when she sensed the victims’ car on the left coming into her lane.
“Because of that, I lost control of my car. After that I woke up and I was on the road and was injured in the mouth, right thigh and left hand.
“I was sent to HKL and was given three days’ sick leave,” she said in her report.
Their claims, however, have been disparaged by eyewitness Muhammad Zaki Abdullah, 18, who told The Star that he saw the Myvi convoy speeding.
“They were racing and they really shouldn’t have. I feel bad for the family. I saw the car spinning and the other Myvi cars stopping because of their friends. But I didn’t see where they disappeared to after that,” he said.
Stop speculating on DUKE highway accident, says police
“Those who were found negligent to the extent of causing death will be charged in court,” he said in a statement today.
So far, he said the police had arrested a 31-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman in connection with the fatal accident.
Mohd Fuad said the duo, however, had been released on police bail and were ordered to report to Kuala Lumpur Traffic Police station within two weeks.
One of the Myvi drivers’ police report. Shifting blame to Pajero. I am disgusted. Really disgusted.
