Chloe was rushed to a nearby hospital for emergency treatment, but doctors couldn't save her.
It is thought that the student was in Malaysia just a few days before the crash.
According to Chloe & # 39; s Facebook page, she is a student at BEAR University in Vancouver, Canada, where she thinks she has studied engineering.
Allegedly, her parents traveled from their home in Epsom, Surrey to Malaysia after hearing the news and expecting Chloe & # 39; s body to be flown back to the UK in the coming days.

The Foreign Ministry said: "We are helping a British woman's family after her death in Malaysia."
Her grandfather Barrie Brigde told it the sun: & # 39; We don't really want to say anything right now. & # 39;
An X Park spokesperson said: “We have helped Chloe's parents who are in Malaysia and they are very upset by what happened.
& # 39; They said she was a very intelligent girl who had gone to college before her time because she was so smart. & # 39;
According to police, the Brit was slipped and her go-kart (photo) crashed, sustaining serious injuries from which she died
Police Commissioner, Dzulkhairi Mukhtar, said she was slipping and crushing her go-kart, resulting in serious injuries.
He said a marshal on the job advised the teenage friends to take her to the nearby Gleneagles Medini hospital instead of waiting for an ambulance.
He said: & # 39; According to an eyewitness, the victim was bleeding badly from her nose and was taken to a private hospital by friends. & # 39;
Assistant Commissioner Dzulkhairi said that she later died in the hospital from her injuries.
The police are investigating her death and the teen's body has been sent to Kulai Hospital north of the city for a post-mortem.
Mr. Dzulkhairi added that the CCTV cameras from the center were not working at the time of the accident, so there was no video footage of the crash.
& # 39; Our checks showed that the CCTV in the sports center was not working, but the investigation is still ongoing, & # 39; he added.
The website of X-Park Malaysia says that the drivers are fitted with a crash helmet and that the go-karts are equipped with a & # 39; sturdy chassis & # 39; for the safety of drivers.
