SUNGAI PETANI: A disabled motorcyclist was killed after he rammed into a stalled multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) on the emergency lane at KM85.1 of the North-South Expressway (northbound) at about 11 am on Sunday (June 5).

Kuala Muda police district chief ACP Zaidy Che Hassan said the victim, Muhammad Faizol Azahar, 23, who only had vision in his left eye, died from severe head injuries.
