Klang Selatan district police chief ACP Cha Hoong Fong said initial investigations showed that the duo, both aged 19, were part of a group racing from the Pandamaran Sports Complex towards Port Klang.

The motorcycles grazed each other, causing both to crash, he said in a statement on Sunday (March 5).

The other victim was receiving treatment for serious injuries, he said.
