BINTULU: A 29-year-old man succumbed early yesterday to injuries sustained in a road accident at Mile 9 Bintulu-Miri Road.

Sarawak Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department head Supt Alexson Naga Chabu said the victim, Panyau Gaing from Rumah Banda, Nanga Seranggir in Ulu Snap, Tatau, passed away at Bintulu Hospital where he was being treated.

He said Panyau and a male passenger were travelling from Miri to Bintulu when the accident happened around 3.15pm Sunday.

“The car is believed to have gone out of control along a straight road (in front of Kampung Penan Muslim) before plunging into a ditch.

“A witness had reported seeing the car overturning several times before it fell into the ditch,” he said in a statement yesterday.

Alexson added both victims were helped out of their badly damaged car by the public, and sent to Bintulu Hospital.
