A 34-year-old delivery worker died after a car driven by a man believed to have fallen asleep crashed into him on the Kuala Lumpur-Seremban Highway heading towards the Sungai Besi Toll Plaza today (2 December).
The incident happened at 12.10am where the victim, Zhafari Bukhori, was confirmed dead while on the way to the hospital, reported Harian Metro.
According to Kuala Lumpur Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) chief Assistant Commissioner Zulkefly Yahya, the initial investigation found that the 47-year-old Honda Civic driver was driving in the third lane when he allegedly fell asleep while passing a bend on the road.
“The car driven by the man then collided with a Honda EX5 motorcycle ridden by the victim who was in the left lane,” he said,
“As a result of the accident, the motorcyclist was dragged for about 1.5 meters and suffered serious injuries.”
