Just yesterday, a 19-year-old girl sparked outrage among Malaysians when she drove against traffic on PLUS highway and killed a 26-year-old father-to-be, Mohd Fandi.
It was later found out that the girl was involved in another accident earlier at Sungai Dua Toll. Apparently her Proton Gen2 had ‘kissed’ the back of 2 cars and she decided to flee the scene.
Out of panic, she drove into a road opening designated for vehicles in emergency to make U-turn, according to FMT. She then continued driving against the traffic flow for some 5km before colliding head on with the Perodua Kelisa, sustaining only minor injuries to her left eye.
Her picture has since gone viral and netizens were eager to find out the identity of the culprit. Within a few hours, her Facebook profile was found.
Apparently, the teenager in question goes by the name of Cindy Ng while other resourceful netizens exposed that her real name is Ng Pei Ven.
It was also revealed that Cindy is a part-time model who has made appearances in launch events and car shows.
And she has participated in many beauty pageants before, according to Moretify.
In fact, she also took part in the ‘Auto-City Miss Popularity 2016’ in Juru, Penang.
She even has her own Facebook page since she considered herself as a public figure. But after causing the accident, netizens flooded her Facebook page with comments, calling her ‘murderer’ and asking her to ‘die’.
Many reckoned that she should be given maximum punishment for her actions.
In fact, a law lecturer Shamsher Singh Thind said that this case was more than causing death due to reckless or dangerous driving, and she should be prosecuted for murder, NST reported.
“This is murder. I call upon the police to investigate the death of Mohamad Fandi Rosli, 26, under Section 302 of the Penal Code, and not under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987,” he said.
Giving an example, he said that if someone were to fire a loaded cannon into a crowd and it kills someone, then the person who fired the weapon is guilty of murder, regardless of whether there was intent to kill anyone.
“In the case before us, driving in an opposite lane at 110 km/h is as dangerous as firing a loaded cannon into a crowd,” he said.
Cindy’s dream of becoming a public figure has finally came true, but not in the way she would’ve imagine.
