S'porean, 55, dies in Porshe crash

JOHOR BARU • A 55-year-old Singaporean died on the spot after ramming his luxury car into a road divider before it plunged into a ravine on the Second Link highway here.

Nusajaya police chief Superintendent Noor Hashim Mohamad said the driver, Mr See Lam Huat, lost control of his northbound vehicle at around 4.30pm yesterday.

"Mr See, who was heading towards Senai, lost control of his Porsche before ramming into the divider and plunged into a ravine," said Supt Noor Hashim. Mr See died on the spot due to serious injuries while his 31-year-old front passenger sustained minor injuries to her legs.

Supt Noor Hashim added that initial investigations showed the driver was probably at fault as road and weather conditions were good.
