KUANTAN: They were heading home to Maran after a wedding, but were killed on the spot in an accident at KM101, Jalan Kuantan-Kuala Lumpur in Maran near here, on Sunday.
Maran police chief Deputy Superintendent Norzamri Abd Rahman said the dead were Musa Abdullah, 31, his wife Norsuraya Mohd Noor, 30, and their son Muhammad Zulkarnain, 3, and Norsuraya's parents, Mohd Noor Che Mat, 78, and Hashimah Ismail, 66.
Norsuraya’s other child Nur Quraitun Ain, 5, who suffered leg injuries, is being treated at Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Hospital in Temerloh.
"The accident is believed to have occurred as they were returning home to Felda Jengka 6, when the Perodua Myvi car driven by Norsuraya, lost control and entered the opposite lane.
"The car collided with two vehicles - a Proton Iswara and Toyota Hilux – which were heading towards Kuala Lumpur but were unable to avoid the victim’s car,” he said in a statement here today.
Norzamri added that both the motorists escaped unhurt.
The bodies of the five were sent to Jengka Hospital, Maran for a post-mortem. The case is being investigated under Section 41 (1) of the Road Transport Act 1987. -- BERNAMA
