Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department Principal Assistant Director SAC II Mohd Hazam Abd Halim was killed in accident at Km 419.7 of the North-South Expressway in Hulu Selangor last night.

In the incident at midnight, the Proton Perdana car driven by his driver Lance Corporal Asminton Salimin, skidded and hit the rear of a trailer which stopped at the emergency lane due to a breakdown.

Mohd Hazam, 50, was on his way to the national capital from Ipoh, Perak, after attending a meeting of the Perak commercial crime division.

Hulu Selangor OCPD Supt Norel Azmi Affandi Yahya said Mohd Hazam, who was seated in the front seat, died on the spot.

“The driver, who is seriously injured, has been sent to the Sungai Buloh Hospital and admitted to the hospital’s intensive care unit,” he told Bernama when contacted.

Meanwhile, Deputy Commercial Crime Department Director Datuk Nooryah Md Anvar, when contacted, said Mohd Hazam’s remains would be taken to his home at No 1, Jalan TTJS 3/1C Taman Tuanku Jaafar, Seremban and would be buried at the Makam Haji Said, Taman Tuanku Jaafar after the Friday prayers.
