BUTTERWORTH: A 51-year-old man was killed after he was rammed by a lorry that was reversing at a construction site at the Northern Butterworth Container Terminal (NBCT) on Tuesday (Nov 3).

North Seberang Prai OCPD Asst Comm Noorzainy Mohd Noor said the victim has been identified as Zaidi Musa from Sungai Bakap and added that he died on the spot from severe head injuries in the 2.30pm mishap.
