Car slams into tree in Miri, driver `missing’

The crash scene.

By Brad Rantayy

MIRI, Dec 15: A single-vehicle accident with a difference occurred near an entertainment outlet around Marina Bay area at about 10pm yesterday.

Passers-by alerted Miri Fire Station that a car had slammed into a tree, but when the firemen arrived at the scene, the driver of the car was nowhere to be found.

Nobody seems to know whether the driver was a man or a woman or whether he or she was injured.

It was also not known how the accident happened.

So, basically, all that was left for the firemen to do was to clear a minor oil spill off the road due to the mishap while a tow truck pulled the partially mangled car to the garage. — DayakDaily
