MELAKA: Diners at Medan Selera Tanjung Kling here had a terrifying moment yesterday when a teenager crashed his mother’s multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) into the food court.
Melaka Tengah district police chief Christopher Patit said the MPV driven by the 16-year-old boy also hit another car parked next to it in the 2.45pm incident.
“Before the incident, the teenager was asked by his mother to start the MPV, but he accidentally reversed the vehicle into diners at the food court,” he said in a statement today.
“The doors of the other car were damaged. The teenager escaped unhurt.”
Police do not know the exact number of diners involved or if anyone was hurt since none had filed a police report so far.
The case is being investigated under Section 43(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for reckless driving.
A 21-second video showing the MPV smashing into the car before reversing at high speed and crashing into customers, including children, having their meals at the food court, went viral on social media.
