KAJANG: A driver and his rear passenger died while another was se­­riously injured after their car crashed into a road shoulder along the KL-Seremban highway.

Driver M. Mathan, 35, and Abdul Razali Mohd Ismail, 28, were killed on the spot after sustaining serious head injuries.

Another passenger S. Karnes, 19, who was in the front seat, sustained serious injuries.

“It is believed that the driver lost control of his vehicle, causing the vehicle to crash into the road shoulder,” Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Othman Nayan said.

The case is being investigated under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for reckless driving and causing death.

In the incident at about 5.30pm, their two daughters, who were also travelling in the lorry, were injured.

Seberang Perai Selatan District Police chief Supt Shafee Abdul Samad said the lorry driver, Khosim Ismail, 32, and his wife Khairunnisa Ahmad Kamaluddin, 31, were killed on the spot.
