KENINGAU: Two siblings died in a tragic accident at Kilometer 56 Jalan Keningau-Nabawan, as they were returning home from a church at Kg. Bahagia A. Nabawan, around 1.00am, in 27 December ago.
District Police Chief, DSP Douglas Nyeging Taong, in confirming the incident said the first victim, Mark Daniel Marisu aged 18 years old (younger brother), a pedestrian from Kg. Bansuit Bahagia A. Nabawan, died at the location due to severe head injury after being hit by a vehicle with unidentified registration plate number, which has fled the area.
His older brother, Joey Rayner Marius, 22, also wounded on his head when he fell with his motorcycle after he accidentally ran over the body of his brother on the road, died at the hospital at the same night.
Douglas said initial investigation found that the younger brother, a victim of a hit and run incident, went home earlier and followed by his brother who was riding a motorcycle. An unidentified vehicle coming from behind suddenly rammed the younger brother.
The older brother who was not far behind could not evade the dead body of his younger brother lying on the road, causing him to go off balance and fell with his motorcycle and injured his head. -SayangSabah
