“We came to know that the bridge named Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin remains opened for vehicle movements until 10.00pm. But the accident was occurred at 10.20 pm,” he mentioned.

Anwarul Islam, uncle of the victim staying in Brunei told the FE that when his nephew Rezaul and his four others collogue were doing repairing works on the bridge, a high-speed car hit Rezaul.

He was severely injured and taken to a hospital. But he died within a short time, he mentioned.

“The bridge remained closed when the workers were working on it. So, how did the car enter on the bridge?” he posed a question.
