“Rescuers found a Toyota Vios badly damaged but its driver only lightly injured. We have not been able to ascertain to make of the other car and the status of its occupants.”
He also added that a search-and-rescue operation which included the Marine police were deployed immediately.
A witness, only known as Azrul, who was fishing with a friend from one of the bridge’s pillar, told the media that they saw the car falling into the sea but couldn’t see anything clearly as it was too dark. He added,
“We shone our torchlights where it fell but did not see anyone.”
