KUALA SELANGOR – A senior citizen slit his throat after a collision with another car which killed the driver.
It is learnt that the 66-year-old man was driving a Mercedes-Benz C200 along Batu 5, Jalan Kampung Sungai Tiram Jaya in Tanjung Karang when his car rammed into a Perodua Myvi at 2.53am yesterday.
The impact of the collision caused the Myvi to plunge into a nearby drain.
Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat said the 40-year-old Myvi driver was pinned inside the car and died at the scene.
“Witnesses saw the senior citizen in a daze after the collision but he was not hurt.
“All of a sudden he took out a knife and slit his own throat. Members of the public could not save him,” he said.
SAC Fadzil said a post-mortem on the senior citizen at the Tanjung Karang Hospital showed that the cause of death was massive bleeding secondary to deep incised wound over the neck.
“We are investigating the incident under Section 41 of the Road Transport Act and sudden death,” he said.
