SIBU, Nov 21: A Honda Civic car crashed into a coffee shop in Jalan Kampung Nyabor here after its driver is believed to have lost control of the vehicle early this morning.

At the time of the 4.45am incident, the coffee shop had yet to open for business for the day.

According to the owner of the premises, Choo Chen Kiong, the incident was recorded by the Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) on the shop premises. The footage also showed the driver fleeing the scene after the incident.


Choo said the car came from the direction of Jalan Persiaran Brooke before it was believed the driver lost control of the vehicle.

It then hit a road divider and the iron fence on the sidewalk before crashing into the coffee shop.

“As a result of the incident, equipment in the shop including a noodle stall, several tables and chairs were damaged,” he said.

However, he was relieved that the accident did not result in injuries or loss of life.

Choo hoped the local authorities would build stronger iron barriers along the sidewalk or road divider opposite his shop.

“This is to prevent such incidents from recurring and also to keep the public safe,” Choo said. — DayakDaily
