Kulai OCPD Supt Tok Beng Yeow said the incident occurred at about 5.50pm on Tuesday (July 20), after a 29-year-old man lost control of his vehicle.

“Investigations revealed that the driver was speeding on the left lane before trying to cross lanes but hit another car in the right lane.

“The impact caused his car to veer into the oncoming lane where it hit the 33-year-old rider,” he said in a statement on Wednesday (July 21).
