Youth dies after bike crashes during illegal race in Klang


SHAH ALAM: A youth has died and his friend seriously injured after their motorcycles crashed during what is believed to be an illegal race along Persiaran Raja Muda Musa in Klang.

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).

"They were taken to Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah (HTAR) Klang at 2.30am but one of the victims died at 6.50am," he added.

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

ACP Cha said the case was being investigated under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 and police were trying to track down the other motorcyclists involved in the race. – Bernama
