A FOUR-VEHICLE crash along the Gua Musang-Kuala Krai highway killed one person and seriously injured five others, including three members of the Kelantan royalty, reported Metro Ahad.
“I could see the car used by the royal family heading our way before the Proton Saga used by their family members hit two other cars which were driving behind us,” said Yusri Ismail, 31, who managed to avoid the collision on Saturday morning.
Yusri and his wife Faradila Kadir, 30, were not injured in the incident near Gua Sejuk.
The incident took place at 7.30am as the Proton was heading from Kota Baru to Kuala Lumpur.
Mohd Saiful Bahri Awang, 41, from the Sungai Asap A Kesedar land development scheme, died, while his wife Siti Nor Fazlina Mohamad, 34, who is a nurse at Jeram Tekoh health clinic, was critically injured.
The three royals, said to be siblings, Tengku Ibrahim Farihaddin Tengku Feissel, 38, Tengku Fatimah Ainura, 34, and Tengku Farini Amelina, 26, were rushed to the Gua Musang Hospital along with Felda Jengka 9 land supervisor Mohd Faizal Mohd Sukri, 30.
> The Malay daily also reported that local fashion designer and television presenter Jovian Mandagie is set to wed a minister’s daughter on Dec 11.
Nina Sabrina Ismail Sabri, 26, also known as Nina, is the daughter of the Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, and Jovian is said to have been dating her for two years.
The couple chose the date because 11/12/13 was an uncommon set of numbers and easy to remember.
The source also speculated that Jovian himself would design Nina’s wedding gown.
