> A woman came to know about her husband’s death as she passed the scene of his accident, reported Sinar Harian.
In the 8.30am incident on Thursday, Mohd Nazry Saion, 33, was on his way to work when his motorcycle hit a Naza Sorento on the Kesas Expressway.
He was thrown off his motorcycle and died on the spot.
His body was still at the scene when his wife, Nor Hafizah Adnan, drove past and noticed that a red jacket near the covered up body looked similar to the one her husband wore.
She stopped and alighted from her car to view the body and when she realised it was her husband, she became emotional and had to be comforted by passers-by.
Nazry’s cousin, Shahrizal Mohd Fadzil, 28, said Nazry usually left for work earlier than his wife but both used the same route to work.
Nazry’s body was buried in Johor the same day.
