SIBU: A 46-year-old Chinese national has been arrested after the van he was driving collided head-on with a motorcycle and killed the rider.
The deceased has been identified as Delaru Kimbie, 38, from Rumah Janin, Sungai Setuan Besar, Balingian.
His eight-year-old son, David Arden Emang Bill Raimond, who was the pillion rider, was admitted to the hospital for treatment.
The suspect was detained under Section 112 of the Road Transport Act 1987 for investigation.
