PETALING JAYA: A police officer met his end after his vehicle crashed into a pillar at the DUKE Highway on Wednesday.
L/Kpl Suhaimi Che Morat, 32, passed away at the Selayang Hospital due to his injuries.
The victim was alone in a Mitsubishi Lancer while making his rounds from Gombak toll plaza to the Karak Highway around 10pm when it was raining.
He reportedly lost control of the patrol car and spun to the right side of the highway and smashed into the concrete pillar.
“He was pulled out alive but he died later at the hospital,” Gombak OCPD Asst Comm Ali Ahmad said. Police are looking at the case for reckless driving.
