Road safety is not something that should be taken lightly since it poses harm towards not only yourself, but others as well. This GrabFood rider, especially, had caused an incident by colliding with a married couple on a motorcycle on the other lane. The worst part, the wife is 7 months pregnant with their second child.
On Saturday (16th July), a 26-year-old pregnant woman, Nor Safikah Zulkifli, was hit by a GrabFood rider at Jalan Semerah Padi, Cheras. According to her husband, Azrolnizam Sidek, his wife had suffered complications after the incident happened and is currently admitted at the Ampang Hospital since the day of the incident.
“The incident happened at 2pm. At that time, I was riding my motorcycle with my wife, on my way to send her to work. When the traffic light at the 4-way intersection turned green on my lane, I rode my motorcycle as usual,” Azrol said, according to mStar.
“Suddenly, a motorcycle rider from another lane collided with us. Fortunately, I was riding slowly so, we didn’t fall to the ground. However, my wife suddenly complained that she felt pain due to the impact. The impact had caused my wife to get hit at the back,” he continued.
Azrol had rushed his wife to the hospital, worried that she was bleeding. Therefore, he couldn’t take note of the motorcycle’s number plate or speak to the rider who had fell on the road at the time. The only information he remembers was that the motorcycle was blue.
The impact had affected the baby’s position in the womb and is currently being monitored by the doctor as there happened to be a strain, as told by Azrol. In an attempt to get in touch with the GrabFood rider, Azrol had written a post on the Grab Food Rider Malaysia Facebook group.
In the statement, Azrol had requested to anyone who knew the rider or if the rider himself had read the post, to contact him and discuss about the incident. So far, there has been no response from the rider who caused the incident. Azrol shared that his wife is also experiencing emotional disturbances as this was her first incident.
As of now, Azrol has made a complaint to the Grab authorities and is in the process of lodging a police report as well.
