IPOH: A police outrider was seriously injured after he was knocked down by a lorry while escorting the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah. 

L/Kpl Abdul Majid Hashim, 46, suffered head and body injuries on Thursday at the 274th kilometre of the North-South Expressway near the Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah Utara exit.
