KUCHING, Feb 21: Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak Baru (PBDSB) president Cobbold John escaped death in a road accident last night.

Cobbold was heading from Simunjan to Kuching, when the accident happened at about 11pm.

He had apparently lost control of his vehicle near a gas station at Jalan Tapah, along the Kuching-Serian road. The vehicle then turned turtle and careened onto the shoulder of the road.


“He was alone in the vehicle. When contacted, Cobbold said he is safe and escaped uninjured,” the party’s youth chief Rapelson Richard Hamit said.

“Cobbold must have been very tired at that time, as he was visiting the communities and had to return to Kuching. He also thanked all those who had asked about and prayed for him,” Rapelson added. — DayakDaily
