Oh no, how could a road collapse so easily?

And two people have lost their lives as a result.   

The two were killed when a stretch of a Kota Marudu-Ranau road in Kota Marudu, Sabah collapsed this morning.

According to the New Straits Times, the two – a motorcyclist and the pillion rider – tumbled into a ravine and were buried in a landslide.

District police chief Superintendent Mohd Izaan Abdullah said they were alerted to the incident along Jalan Marak Parak at 7.30am by the district Fire and Rescue Department.

"A police team was deployed to the site, where both victims were found (dead)," he said.

As of 10.30am, police have yet to identify the victims.
