BUKIT MERTAJAM — March 17, 2017: The teenage girl who drove against traffic the North-South Highway last Tuesday, resulting in a motorist being killed, pleaded not guilty today to drug abuse.

Ng Pei Ven, 19, was charged with self-administration of amphetamine.

The part-time model faces jail of up to two years or a fine of up to RM5,000.

Prosecuting officer ASP Md. Azman Kadir offered bail of RM8,000 with one surety and also requested a court order for her to report at the narcotic department every week.

He also requested a court order to suspend her driving licence as the case is of public interest.

However, the court could not decide on the matter as the investigation on Ng’s case under the Road Transport Act is
pending.

Magistrate Jamaliah Abd Manap then allowed Ng bail of RM5,000 with two sureties and ordered her to report to the  nearest police station once a week.

In the incident the girl collided into a Perodua Kelisa and caused the death of technician Mohamad Fandi Rosli, 26.

She is believed to have been driving against traffic for about five kilometres before colliding into Fandi’s car in the accident which involved six vehicles. Five people were injured. — Bernama
