The speed demon who crashed into the back of a police patrol car on Monday and then casually sped off, has been revealed to be a student.
According to city police, the 21-year-old — whose Volkswagen Polo could be seen on a viral dash cam recording speeding through the new underground tunnel near Pudu Jail before the accident — later lodged a police report, The Star Online’s Austin Camoens reports.
“Two policemen were on patrol along Jalan Pudu heading towards the city when the Volkswagen Polo was reported to have lost control and rammed into it. The collision caused the police car to spin before it hit the barrier,” he said,” KL traffic police investigation and traffic law officer Deputy Superintendent S. Markandan was quoted as saying.
