State Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department chief Supt Alexson Naga Chabu identified the deceased as Fahzrul Shah Abdul Khalik, 18, from Kampung Bintawa Batu.

“Upon arrival at the scene around 7.30pm, it was reported that the driver was from Taman Duranta, Gita who was heading towards Jalan Pustaka. During the process of turning right, the motorbike collided with a four-wheel drive sports utility vehicle (SUV) that was in the process of turning right onto the road.
