KUALA LUMPUR, July 9 (Bernama) -- The driver of the car involved in the hit and run injury of three participants of NTV7 charity run in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya two days ago, only lodged a police report on the incident today.

The 29-year-old driver, who is a landscape designer, lodged the report at the Petaling Jaya traffic police station at 1am and was arrested about two hours later.

Petaling Jaya deputy district police officer Supt Fadil Marsus said the suspect, from Taiping, Perak, was driving his sister's car.

"Based on his report, he had hit participants of the NTV7 Feel Good Run and then fled the scene and went back to a friend's house because he feared being hit by witnesses," he told Bernama here today.

He said the suspect was detained for further investigation.
