KOTA BARU: Three people were killed and three others seriously injured after their motorcycles were involved in a seven-vehicle pile-up at KM9.9 of the Ketereh-Kota Baru Highway here.

Kota Baru police chief ACP Mohd Rosdi Daud said the victims, aged between 19 and 21, were in a convoy of six motorcycles travelling from Ketereh towards Kota Baru when the accident happened at 12.50am yesterday.

He said the motorcyclists were believed to be travelling at high speed and the area was not lit.
