Accidents can happen everyday, especially on highways, and sometimes the details can be agonising for readers to digest.
This time, it’s no different. A motorcyclist was found dead after being stuck under a lorry for a whole kilometer yesterday (23rd November 2020).
It is reported that the incident happened at the Kuala Lumpur Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) highway, right after the Batu Caves roundabout heading towards Kepong. It was heavily raining at the time. The victim, who was riding an MZ Motorrad motorcycle, has been identified as Wong Chun Hung, 20, and was confirmed dead at the scene.
The incident happened when the victim rode through a puddle causing him to slip in the middle of the road before getting hit by a lorry and dying on the spot. The victim’s body was dragged under the heavy vehicle for a kilometer before the lorry driver became aware of it when other motorcyclists honked at him to stop.
Based on the photos, firefighters came to the scene to help dislodge the victim’s body, which seemed to be stuck underneath the lorry’s front left tire. News got around social media after Twitter user @redzuanNewsMPB shared the incident yesterday.
KL Traffic Investigation and Enforcement (JSPT) Department’s Assistant Commissioner Zulkifly Yahya said in a report by Harian Metro that the incident had occurred after the victim, who was on the left lane of the road, had violated the water lock.
