A 55-year-old man from Kampung Bayur perished in an accident after he fell into a ravine when going down a hill on a motorcycle from a resort at Borneo Heights here Sunday.
The victim, identified as Duren Ango, was with another friend who was riding a separate motorcycle. They were on their way back home around 6pm when the incident occurred.
Prior to the tragedy, it was said that the victim had tried to dodge a ‘white figure’ when he lost control of his machine and crashed through the road barrier before plunging into the 30-meter deep ravine.
So did the other friend see it? Could it have been fog or a real person? It was hilly terrane which sounds treacherous to begin with. There was no details about legends or weather or any other details that could shed light on this story. Ghostly figures on roads are such common tales. While I did a super quick search to find this type of story for Sarawak, I was not able to locate anything that fits well.
I doubt we’ll hear more and I’d bet this will become a haunted road from now on.
