Another biker killed while overtaking

23rd September, 2019

TAWAU: Another motorcyclist was killed while attempting to overtake a vehicle in the east coast within 48 hours.

The accident occurred in Tawau one day after a Canadian died when his high-powered bike collided with a 4WD vehicle driven by a Frenchman at Km 24 Jalan Ranau-Telupid on Friday.

In the latest case, labourer Jeluing anak Apau, 48, was overtaking a vehicle near Kampung Jagung, Jalan Merotai-Bombalai when his motorcycle collided with an oncoming 4WD at about 10pm on Saturday.

OCPD Supt Peter Umbuas said investigation revealed the motorcyclist overtook a vehicle but collided with the 4WD before he could get back into his lane.

“The victim died of serious injuries on the spot and his motorbike burst into flames while the 4WD driver who was returning to his house in Taman Ambar from Kalabakan, was unhurt,” Peter added.

Jeluing was riding his motorcycle from the direction of Kampung Iban before colliding with the 4WD which was travelling from Kalabakan to Taman Ambar.

The district police chief said police were investigating the accident under Section 41(1)(a) of the Road Transport Act 1987.
