According to an unnamed relative, the 31-year-old man was heading back to his village around 4.15am when a ‘white figure’ appeared from nowhere and ‘dashed’ across the dark road in front of him.
The sight of the apparition shocked him to the point where he lost control of his Perodua Viva, which overturned on the road and caused the unfortunate driver to sustain serious injuries to his right arm.
Local villagers who heard the crash called for an ambulance to take the victim to the Sarawak General Hospital.
In an unrelated accident, a foreign college student sustained minor injuries to his head and leg following a two-car collision at a traffic light junction along Jalan Song on Tuesday night.
The victim was a passenger in a Perodua Kenari driven by a fellow student when they crashed into the side of a Honda CRV driven by a man around 10.30pm.
According to a witness, the latter vehicle was making a turn from Jalan Song into Taman BDC, while the students were travelling straight along the main road.
The two drivers were not injured in the incident.
District traffic police personnel was present at the scene to investigate the collision and later recorded the statement of both drivers when they lodged a report.
