A teenage girl has been killed after crashing a go-kart at an extreme sports centre in Malaysia.

The 18-year-old Briton was reportedly driving the go-kart around a track at the Malaysia X-Park in the city of Iskandar Puteri, southern Malaysia, when she lost control of the vehicle.

According to Police Assistant Commissioner Dzulkhairi Mukhtar, the victim skidded and crashed her go-kart, sustaining serious injuries. He said a marshal at the track advised the teenager's friends to take her to the nearby Gleneagles Medini Hospital rather than wait for an ambulance.

Dzulkhairi also confirmed that she died later in hospital from her injuries.

He added the centre's CCTV cameras were not working at the time of the accident so there was no video footage of the crash.

He said: 'According to an eyewitness, the victim was bleeding badly from her nose and she was rushed to a private hospital by friends.'

'Our checks showed the CCTV at the sports centre was not working but the investigation is still ongoing,' he added.

It is not yet known why the 18-year-old was in Malaysia, but Police are investigating her death and the teenager's body has been sent to the Kulai Hospital north of the city for a postmortem.
