Life can be unpredictable. All it takes is an unforeseen incident to change someone’s entire world.
25-year-old Jason Low Jia Jun was distraught when his 30-year-old girlfriend, Christine Wong Li Yi passed away in a road accident.
Wong Li Yi was a hardworking woman with several jobs. She ran two fried kway teow stalls and was a part-time food delivery person. “She leaves home at 8 o’clock in the morning every morning, and sometimes works until 9 o’clock at night before returning home,” Low said.
Last night (27th January), she was delivering her last order of the day when she was involved in a road accident. According to her boyfriend, she planned to head home after dropping off the order as the location was near her house. Witnesses claim a car had made a turn without using the signal light and knocked her over. The driver immediately left the scene.
The accident happened at the Puchong-USJ intersection at 6pm. Wong Li Yi’s second sister said she was delivering food to a customer in USJ from Cheras. Currently, the police are investigating the matter. Although many are calling it a hit-and-run, Subang Jaya police chief ACP Abdul Khalid states that the police have not ruled out that Wong’s motorcycle may have slipped on the road as it was raining that day. Her body has been sent for an autopsy.
“At present we cannot determine how my sister’s accident happened,” Wong’s second sister said. One car driver saw the motorcycle overturn when a car was beside him, but he was unable to determine if the car had collided with the bike. Unfortunately, he did not have a dash cam, nor was he able to catch the car’s license plate number.
Low posted on his Facebook that he had rushed to the scene after receiving a call from the police. It had been raining heavily then, but he arrived without hinderance. However, Wong had already passed. Both Low and Wong’s sister have made posts on Facebook asking witnesses to come forward if they have information about the incident. “Our families just want to know the truth…” Low said.
Low met his girlfriend nearly four years ago and planned to propose to her this year. They also intended to get registered and buy a house together. His last unopened gift to her is a motorcycle helmet with a design she liked, as she was a fan of heavy motorcycles.
“…And in the coming days, I’ll try to continue to live for you, having you here on earth was a blessing. To my most beautiful angel (wife),” he wrote. Many have left their condolences on their Facebook pages. We too pray for the family to find closure soon.
