IPOH: The mother of actress Catriona Ross, Siti Zawiyah Abd Rahman, 63, was among three killed in an accident involving a car and an express bus at Kilometer 61.8 Jalan Raya Timur-Barat, near Gerik, early this morning.
Two others who perished in the 1am accident were identified as Sitah Abdullah, 53, and Norini Abdul Ghani, 43, who were also in the car with Siti.
Gerik police chief Supt Abdul Manab Baharum said all three died at the scene while the driver of the car, Mustapa Che Su, 54, was admitted at the Taiping Hospital with serious injuries.
"The Proton Saga car driven by Mustapa was trying to overtake a number of cars when it crashed head-on with an express bus that was coming from the
opposite direction, before landing in a ditch," he said.
He said the car was on its way to Gerik from Jeli when the accident happened.
