City Traffic Enforcement and Investigation Department chief Assistant Commissioner said in the 3.20am incident, the car driven by Lim Kok Beng, 43, collided with a lorry as he was exiting the junction.

“The lorry driver, Harun Ansari Zakaria Ansari, 30, was driving from Cheras towards Masjid Negara and was on his way to Selayang market.

“Due to the impact of the collision, the victim’s car was dragged away before it hit the traffic light and entered the opposite lane.

“The car driver, who sustained severe injuries, died at the scene, while a woman passenger who was with him, escaped with minor injuries,” he said in a statement today.

Zulkefly said blood sample of the deceased had been sent for tests to allow the police to ascertain whether he was driving under the influence of alcohol.

He said the case was being investigated under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.
