MANJUNG: A woman was killed yesterday when she was hit by a tyre that fell off from a trailer lorry, in front of her house at Jalan Ayer Tawar-Beruas, here. In the 6.30pm incident, the victim, Mariaty Bakar, 59, was said to be watering her plants when the spare tyre of the trailer came flying into the front lawn of the house and struck right at her. She was pronounced dead on the spot following serious injury to the head.

State Traffic Enforcement and Investigation Department chief Superintendent Wan Jamil Wan Chik said the police are still carrying an investigation to identify the trailer lorry. He said police believed the lorry driver might not have noticed that his trailer’s spare tyre had gotten loose and hit the victim. “The victim, who suffered serious head injury, died at the scene and was taken to Seri Manjung Hospital for post mortem.

“The case was investigated under Section 41 (1) Road Transport Act 1987,” said Wan Jamil.
