Oil Tanker Lorry Overturns In Paitan, Driver Dies

BELURAN, Feb 14 (Bernama) -- The driver of an oil tanker lorry was killed when the vehicle overturned at Kilometre 150 Jalan Beluran-Paitan, today.

Beluran district police chief Supt Shivanathan Velautham said the victim, Lee Nyuk Fook, 53, from Sandakan died at the scene while lorry attendant Rumih Bin Yosep, 18, had a broken leg.

He said the tanker was heading for Kota Marudu for a delivery when the incident took place at 7.30 am.

He said the tanker hit a hillside and overturned when its brakes failed while taking a corner on a downhill stretch of the road.

Lee's body, which was trapped in his seat, was extricated with the help of firemen while Rumih was sent to the Nangoh Health Clinic, he said.
