A Form Five student of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Tengku Abdullah, Pekan was killed after his motorcyle collided with a Perodua Myvi car driven by a teacher at Km1 of Jalan Batu Balik near Taman Pelangkah, Pekan, here yesterday.
Pekan district police chief Supt Amran Sidek said the deceased, identified as Muhammad Redwan Fuad, 17, died at the scene in the incident which occurred about 7.30am.
He said both the student and the teacher were on their way to their respective schools.
The accident was believed to have occurred when the student, who was riding his uncle’s motorcycle, crashed into a car he was trailing when the car driver applied the brakes, he said.
Amran said the impact caused the motorcycle to skid and veered into the path of oncoming vehicles.
At the same time, the teacher, who was driving in the opposite lane towards Sekolah Kebangsaan Temai, could not apply his brakes on time and hit the student’s motorcycle, he told reporters here.-BERNAMA
