SEREMBAN: A man was killed and six others were injured after the motorcycles they were riding were involved in an accident at KM259.9 northbound of the North-South Expressway (NSE) on Saturday (May 6) morning.

Seremban district police chief ACP Nanda Maarof said the 19-year-old victim died at the scene due to severe body injuries in the 2.40am incident.

"The victim was riding a Yamaha 135 LC motorcycle in the middle lane when he lost control of the machine before it skidded, causing six other motorcyclists to collide while trying to avoid him.

"As a result of the collision, two victims, aged 21 and 18, suffered serious injuries to the head, hands and feet, while the other four suffered minor injuries to the hands and feet,” he said in a statement here.
