SARATOK: A mo­tor­cy­clist was killed while his pil­lion rider was se­ri­ously in­jured after their ma­chine col­lided head-on with a car at KM24 Kabong-Roban road near here on Fri­day.

When con­tacted, Saratok Dis­trict po­lice chief DSP Mor­dani Tanin iden­ti­fied the mo­tor­cy­clist as Satu Li­dang, 50, from Rumah Lan­gan, Ulu Se­be­tan and the pil­lion rider as Kadi Ajun, 20.

The ac­ci­dent hap­pened around 4.30pm, when the two were trav­el­ling from Kabong to Roban, and the car was com­ing from the op­po­site di­rec­tion.

Satu and Kadi were both thrown off the mo­tor­cy­cle in the col­li­sion.

The im­pact of the ac­ci­dent was so great that the mo­tor­cy­cle be­came em­bed­ded in the front of the car.

Both the badly-dam­aged car and mo­tor­cy­cle ended up in a ditch.

The 59-year-old car driver was not in­jured in the ac­ci­dent.

Mor­dani added the case is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated un­der Section 41(1) of the Road Trans­port Act 1987.
