In the incident at about 2.45pm yesterday, a motorcyclist crashed into a Myvi that was parked in the emergency lane nearby the Bukit Teratai toll plaza, heading towards Kuala Lumpur.

According to Ampang Jaya district police chief Farouk Eshak, the driver had parked the car in the emergency lane to enjoy the scenic view along the 16.6km stretch of the first phase of the highway.
