JOHOR BARU (Bernama): A Singaporean was decapitated when his superbike was involved in a freak accident with a van at KM6.6 of Jalan Gelang Patah near Iskandar Puteri.

Iskandar Puteri police chief ACP Dzulkhairi Mukhtar said the 43-year-old motorcyclist was heading to Ulu Choh from Gelang Patah when he crashed into the van driven by a local man at 9.33am Saturday (June 15).

"Initial investigations found that the accident occurred when the van turned right and the victim, who was allegedly driving fast from the opposite direction, crashed into it.

"The high-speed impact of the collision resulted in the victim being decapitated and thrown onto the middle of the road,” he said in a statement here Sunday (June 16).

The 28-year-old van driver, however, was not injured.

The victim’s remains were taken to Sultanah Aminah Hospital for post-mortem and the case is being investigated under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987. - Bernama
