BAYAN LEPAS: A dashboard camera has recorded the incident of a tour bus crashing into a terrace house killing a motorcyclist, here, yesterday.
Facebook account holder Chunly Mei shared the five-minute footage which garnered over 9,000 views and 676 shares within two hours.
The video showed the green coloured tour bus speeding down a steep road before crashing into a house near Pesiaran Kelicap, here.
Several road users who were waiting at the traffic light were taken aback by what happened while some parked their vehicles by the roadside to help the victims.
Based on the time displayed in the video, the incident was said to have taken place at about 6.50pm.
The bus was heading towards Bayan Lepas and hit a parked Proton Waja before it lost control and hit a Suzuki Swift which was turning to the right.
It then hit a motorcycle, killing part time pizza restaurant worker, Muhammad Saifullah Muhammad Hafiez, 16, before it came to a halt after ramming into the wall of the house.
The driver and two other passengers in the Suzuki Swift sustained injuries and were sent for treatment at a hospital.
Southwest district police chief Superintendent A.A. Anbalagan said that the bus driver was arrested under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for causing death by reckless or dangerous driving.
“His urine will also be tested,” he said in a statement.
Upon initial investigation, Anbalagan cited brake problem was the reason for the bus having lost control.
Police are carrying out further investigation.
