Multiple witnesses claimed that he was intoxicated while driving

In the comment section of Inforoadblock, many netizens urged the authorities to apprehend the driver for driving under the influence and destruction of property. One of them even witnessed the entire event and shared how it panned out.

A lot of them directly assumed that this was the work of a drunk driver as he would not have run away if he was not guilty.

One joked that he may have crashed the kiosk out of anger directed at the price of petrol.

Offenders who are found guilty of drunk driving may be fined between RM10,000 and RM30,000, jailed for up to two years and disqualified from driving for two years following amendments to Section 45A of the Road Transport Act. Please refrain from driving after drinking!
