SHAH ALAM – Two Federal Highway users were killed when the car they were travelling in hit the pillar of the unused Batu Tiga toll plaza in the 12.55 am incident.
The fatal accident this morning involving the toll plaza was the second recorded at the location, following another fatal accident that saw two friends losing their lives and one was injured, on Jan 15.
Shah Alam district police chief ACP Baharudin Mat Taib said the victims were identified as Fathurezza Khoirul Huda Halimsuyto, 31, and Noor Hidayah Mohamed Rezmi, 27.
He said initial investigations revealed that the car was travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Shah Alam and believed to have been speeding before they lost control of the vehicle and rammed into the pillar of the toll plaza.
Both victims were believed to be on their way home from celebrating Noor Hidayah’s birthday which was on Feb 18, yesterday.
Baharudin said the bodies were sent to the Shah Alam Hospital for a post-mortem and the case was being investigated under Section 41 (1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.
