Police detain female driver in crash that kills baby


PETALING JAYA: The female driver of a car involved in an accident at Km433.8 of the North-South Expressway in which a baby was killed, has been detained by the police.

According to The Star Online, Hulu Selangor OCPD Supt R Supramaniam said the 27-year-old driver tested negative for drugs.

However, samples of her blood have been sent to Hospital Sungai Buloh for further alcohol and drug tests.

A three-month baby, Aril Rizqin Redza Shahril, was killed in the collision at 1pm yesterday after being flung out of the car.

Berita Harian Online reported last night that a 30-second video of the accident, when uploaded on Facebook, went viral.

Yesterday, Supramaniam identified the driver of one of the cars as S Nishanty, 27.

Her car spun out of control after colliding into another along the highway, and slammed into the road barrier when it finally came to a stop.

The other car, driven by Shahril Salleh, 32, skidded upon impact and crashed into a drain by the highway.

His wife, Rafnah Mongudancgal, 35, and baby were flung out of the car.

Shahril, his wife and two other sons, Aril Hakimi Ashraf, 11; and Aril Zakuan Haris, 4; sustained minor injuries.
