ALOR GAJAH: A teenager on his way to Bangi, Selangor for the school holidays was killed when he was run over by a lorry along KM219 of the North-South Expressway here.

Alor Gajah OCPD Supt Arshad Abu said the victim, identified as 16-year-old Nor Shah Asrap Reduan from Jalan Pokok Mangga here, died on the spot due to multiple injuries during the accident at 2.50am on Tuesday (March 7).

He said the victim, a student of SMK Tun Tuah in Melaka Tengah, was riding a motorcycle and planned to stay with his brother, 22, in Bangi during the school holidays.

"The victim was following his brother and is believed to have rammed into the rear of a lorry before falling to the left side of the highway.

"Another lorry travelling on the same side later hit and dragged the victim for about 100m," he said.

Supt Arshad said the elder brother was unaware that the victim was involved in the accident until he noticed the latter was no longer behind him.

He said both lorry drivers who were on their way to Kuala Lumpur lodged police reports on the same day.

He added that an investigation had been initiated under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.
