A car driven by a 44-year-old South Korean man rammed into a stationary lorry near Taiping killing him instantly on Thursday morning.

According to The Star, victim Kim Eun-koo, a network engineer from Kuala Lumpur, was heading to Penang when the accident happened on Km226.1 of the North-South Expressway.

Taiping OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Taib said Kim's vehicle rammed into the rear of the lorry parked by the side of the expressway near the Bukit Gantang rest area.

"His car was wedged between the lorry and the road, and the driver succumbed to severe head injuries.

"The 23-year-old lorry driver from Nibong Tebal escaped unhurt and has been detained," he added.

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