KUALA LUMPUR: A motorcyclist was killed after a lorry ran over him in a gruesome accident on Jalan Cheras.

According to investigations, the deceased, Mohd Amin Song Abdullah, 44, was riding in between the lorry and another car.

City Traffic chief Asst Comm Zulkefly Yahya said all three vehicles were heading from Kajang to the city centre with the lorry driver on the left lane and the car in the middle lane.

ACP Zulkefly said in the 10.50am incident on Thursday, the driver of the car suddenly switched to the left lane and knocked down Mohd Amin, causing him to fall onto the road.

He was later run over by the oncoming lorry and died on the spot from head injuries.

The case is being investigated under Sec 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for causing death by reckless and dangerous driving.
