A LOCAL man driving his car towards Kuala Belait town lost control and inexplicably brought his vehicle to turn upside down at Jln Setia Diraja yesterday evening.

The man, coming from Seria, had met with rush-hour traffic close to 5pm as workers were busy heading home from offices in the town.

The accident further clogged up the roads as traffic could only use one lane and curious onlookers slowed down to view the scene.

Police received an emergency call at 4.40pm, moving to the scene with traffic police to control traffic flow.

Meanwhile, the man, in his 30s, was helped out of his car by passers-by and brought to the Suri Seri Begawan Hospital by a woman driving by the scene. Luckily, he has been reported to be safe and has returned home. The accident is still under police investigation.
