NEWSPAPER vendor V. Veeravel (pic), 21, was killed on the spot when his motorcycle hit a dog crossing the road, causing him to fall and hit his head.
Penang News Vendors and Book Sellers Association president M. Murugesan said Veeravel was delivering newspapers when the incident happened around 5am in Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah yesterday.
Murugesan expressed his regret that Veeravel was not a registered member of the association.
“We cannot help his family as he was not a member but the vendors will probably organise a collection.”
Murugesan advised vendors to become members so they can be covered and receive benefits.
