A traffic policeman was injured after his motorcycle was rammed by a car at a traffic light junction at Jalan Merbau, Miri yesterday.
Lance Corporal Mohd Nur Iman Ngarif sustained injuries on his right shoulder and body as well as well as his mouth.
Apparently, Nur Iman was escorting a convoy of officials for the ongoing 18th Malaysian Games (SUKMA). Nur Iman was manning traffic at the scene to make way for the convoy when he was rammed by a Toyota Avanza.
“The traffic policeman was stopping other vehicles to ensure smooth passage for the Sukma convoy.
“The driver of the Avanza, however, did not heed the order and proceeded instead but ended up crashing into our man,” said Alexson.
The victim is now being treated at Miri Hospital.
