Kota Kinabalu: A 32-year-old man was sentenced to seven years in jail and RM30,000 fine or 12 months’ jail by the Traffic Court here for dangerous driving, which caused the death of a food delivery rider in Penampang, three years ago.

Magistrate Lovely Natasha Charles meted out the sentence to Azlan Mohd Salem.

The court ordered Azlan to serve jail term from the date of the conviction.
