JITRA: A teenage couple were found naked after an accident here yesterday.
The 1.30am incident occurred along the Changlun-Bukit Kayu Hitam Expressway, after the couple tried to evade a police patrol car.
The 19-year-old university student from Kulim, who was the driver, suffered serious head injuries.
He has been admitted to Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital in critical condition. The female companion, also 19 and from the same university in Perlis, broke both legs.
The couple had earlier stopped their car by the roadside after paying toll at the Jitra toll plaza.
They were on their way back to their campus after a day trip in Alor Star.
The couple panicked when they saw a patrol car, with its beacon lights turned on, approaching their car.
In his haste, the driver sped off and the car careened off the expressway and rammed a tree, about 2km from the toll plaza. - NST
