Hell Riders Or Mat Rempit Cause Malaysia Athletes Hospitalised

Reckless and dangerous riding by ‘Hell Riders’ or “Mat Rempits” caused two promising national middle distance runners, Amran Raj and Mathialagan Subramaniam, to be hospitalised after they were involved in a road accident yesterday.

Malaysia Amateur Athletics Union (MAAU) deputy president Karim Ibrahim disclosed that Amran, who is one of the country’s top 4×400 metres runner and Mathialagan Subramaniam, a national junior 800 metres runner, were involved in the accident in front of Bukit Jalil LRT Station near here at 4.30pm.

He said the duo were in a Perodua Kelisa car driven by a national footballer and were on their way to Sri Petaling for afternoon tea when the incident happened.

Karim said according to Amran’s account when he visited him at the Serdang Hospital, the accident happened after the driver lost control of his car when several Mat Rempit overtook them recklessly and dangerously, causing the driver to knock into the back of another car before it ran over the road dividers and crashed into a tree on the opposite side nearby LRT station.

“Both cars were badly damaged. All three in the Kelisa were admitted to Serdang Hospital but Mathialagan was discharged later as his injuries were not serious,” he said.

Amran who suffered a fractured right leg was later transferred to the Damansara Specialist Centre for an operation, he said, adding that the footballer was still receiving treatment at the Serdang Hospital.

Amran was a member of the 4x400m team which won the gold medal at the 2007 Korat SEA Games.

Yesterday, the chief coach of the national athletics contingent Hanapiah Nasir sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident while on sightseeing trip at Genting Highlands.

He suffered internal haemorrhage as a result of four ribs being fractured in the accident and is likely to be out of action for about a month as a result.
