Road claims second life in two weeks

A LAKSA seller died on the spot after his motorcycle crashed into a tree in Kelawei Road, Penang.

Tan Eng Guan, 47, (pic) was said to be on his way back home to Paya Terubong after delivering some ingredients for laksa to other hawkers.

The accident happened early Tuesday morning at about 3am.

Tan’s daughter, who declined to speak to reporters at the Penang Hospital mortuary, was seen sobbing uncontrollably.

Tan’s wake will be held at the Batu Gantong funeral parlour.

The accident took place near the site where property realtor Elizabeth Cheang, 25, was killed after the Porsche 911 Carrera she was travelling in crashed into a tree on Jan 12.
