JOHOR BARU (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - A couple's routine ride from Malaysia to Singapore for work turned tragic after their motorcycle rammed into a stationary motorcycle and lorry along the Malaysia-Singapore Second Link.
Nusajaya district police chief Noor Hashim Mohamad said that the duo was heading to work in Singapore from Senai when the incident occurred at KM 24.6 southbound of the Second Link at around 5.45am on Monday.
He said that the victim, identified as Ms Leow Siew Hoong, was the pillion rider while her husband was riding the motorcycle along the stretch.
