BATU PAHAT: A trip back to her campus in Seremban ended in tragedy for an 18-year-old matriculation student after the car she was travelling in with five other family members crashed along KM104 of the North-South Expressway here.
Nur Zahirah Hussin suffered major head injuries while her father, mother, two sisters and a friend were injured.
Nur Zahirah succumbed to her injuries while receiving treatment at the Sultanah Fatimah Specialist Hospital in Muar.
It is believed that the Toyota Fortuner driven by her father skidded and turned turtle at the side of the road in the accident that occurred at 10.30am.
A friend, Nur Balqish Zamri, 18, when met at the hospital, said Nur Zahirah was supposed to sit for her examinations tomorrow.
She said the last time they met was last Friday before they left for home to celebrate Hari Raya Aidiladha.
“We usually communicate through Twitter and I remember her telling me that she may not be able to meet up because she was busy preparing for her final semester examinations,” Nur Balqish said.
Batu Pahat OCPD Asst Comm Din Ahmad confirmed the case, adding that the cause of the incident was still under investigation.
