Woman charged with causing four deaths while drink-driving

13th July, 2018

TAWAU: A woman was charged on Thursday in the Magistrate’s Court for causing the deaths of a teenager and three men and badly injuring a man in a road accident here last Sunday.

Olivia Chong Oi Yun, 34, was accused of causing the deaths of Dicson Lim Kien Shing, 16, Hiew Nyuk Wei, 30, Clawence Wong Vui Kit, 21, and Chung Vui Chan, 21, and badly injuring Ching Guan Xiong, 21, at 1.20am on July 8 at Jalan Chong Thien Vun in front of the BDC Commercial Centre (1 Arena) while driving under the influence of alcohol.

No plea was recorded after the charge was read out to Chong before Magistrate Ferhanshah Farene Mohd Ferdaus who set Aug 15 for mention pending receipt of the complete chemical report on the accused and the victims.

DPP Wan Muhammad Fitri Wan Azizan did not offer bail but the court granted bail of RM4,000 in two sureties and ordered Chong’s driving licence to be suspended pending the conclusion of the case and her passport to be retained and required her to report fortnightly to the investigating officer.

Chong was charged under Section 44(1)(b) of the Road Transport Act 1987 which provides for imprisonment of a maximum of 10 years and a fine of up to RM20,000 if convicted. –Bernama
