Port Dickson District Police Chief, Superintendent Aidi Sham Mohamed, provided details on the unfortunate incident, which took place around 1.30 pm.

Collision on Jalan Sua Betong-Air Kuning

The motorcyclist, a technician at Sua Betong Farm, was on his way home with his son when the collision occurred with a Mercedes car driven by a 33-year-old Singaporean.

”Preliminary investigations found that the accident is believed to have occurred when the two vehicles were moving from the direction of Air Kuning towards Sua Betong,” Superintendent Aidi Sham explained in a statement.

He continued, “Upon arriving at the location, the car was overtaking the vehicle in front of it and hit the right side of the motorcycle which was turning to the right junction towards Ladang Sua Betong.”

The consequences of the collision were tragic. The motorcycle rider sustained injuries, including a broken shoulder and right leg, while the young passenger sadly lost his life while receiving medical care at the hospital.

S’porean driver remanded for three days

Remarkably, the driver of the car emerged from the accident unharmed. Preliminary tests, including a urine analysis and a breath test, indicated that the driver was not under the influence of alcohol.

“The driver of the car did not suffer any injuries. A preliminary urine test on the driver was negative and a breath test showed no alcohol in the blood”, he added.
