KUALA LUMPUR - Dashboard camera video footage of a hatchback vehicle ploughing into a police patrol car before speeding off has gone viral on social media.
The video shows the police car driving on the left lane with another car on the right along the two-lane road.
A speeding Volkswagen Polo car was seen overtaking the vehicle with the camera on the left lane, and was unable to stop in time to avoid a collision.
It ploughed straight into the police car, which spun out of control and rammed into the road barrier.
The speeding vehicle then fled from the scene.
Kuala Lumpur traffic police investigation and traffic law officer Deputy Superintendent S. Markandan said the incident occurred at around 8.55am Monday.
"Two policemen were on patrol along Jalan Pudu heading towards the city when the Volkswagen Polo was reported to have lost control and rammed into it.
"The collision caused the police car to spin before it hit the barrier," he said, adding that both policemen in the vehicle suffered minor injuries.
He said the 21-year-old college student who was driving the Volkswagen drove off but lodged a police report later that day.
DSP Markandan said the case was being investigated as driving while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs.
22号早上9:09am，我朋友在上班途中，经过前pudu jail的新隧道时，在他的左边车道有一辆VW Polo，不知道发生什么事情，看似是开了全速的撞上前面的警车，警车被撞的转了一转，然后那辆VW Polo也没停下就跑了，这两位警员都幸好没事情。转载请注明影片出处～谢谢完整版在意外发生之前影片中也有看到那辆VW POLO，大家看一看有没有什么不妥～！！5分钟完整版 - https://youtu.be/-E6ifqYmtI4更多好野尽在 废柴联盟Posted by 废柴联盟 on Tuesday, June 23, 2015
