Policeman in critical condition after Puchong high-speed chase
A police lance corporal sustained severe injuries when he was involved in an accident following a high-speed chase in Puchong early today.
At 1.10am, Lance Corporal Mohd Ridzuan Harun was doing his rounds with his partner when they saw a motorcyclist behaving in a suspicious manner at Jalan Persiaran Tasik Prima, Puchong.
Subang Jaya police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohammad Azlin Sadari said Ridzuan tried to approach the man for inspection but the man fled on his motorcycle, prompting the police to give chase.
About five kilometres in, Ridzuan’s partner spotted the former sprawled near his motorcycle on the road.
The suspect is believed to have ditched his motorcycle and fled on foot.
“We are still unsure whether Ridzuan was injured from a scuffle or if he fell during the pursuit, as there were no witnesses,” he said.
Ridzuan fractured his skull and sustained internal bleeding. Other injuries are still being assessed.
Ridzuan, attached to the Bukit Puchong police station is in critical condition. He is being treated at the Serdang Hospital.
The police are waiting for further developments on his condition from specialists.
Police have launched a manhunt for the suspect.
