Grim task: Fire and Rescue Department personnel surveying the wreck after the car-lorry collision near Gua Tempurung, Kampar.
KAMPAR: The four Kolej Tunku Abdul Rahman students, who were killed when their car crashed head on with a lorry near Gua Tempurung here, were returning after a birthday party.
Angel Loh, the sister of Thomas Loh, who was the driver of the Perodua Viva, said her brother and three friends had attended a birthday party in Menglembu in Ipoh prior to the 5am tragedy along KM25 of the Jalan Ipoh-Kuala Lumpur trunk road.
Thomas, along with Koh Suet Mun, Wong Pei Pei and Ling Yok Sue, all 20 years old, died in the collision.
Angel said her brother had borrowed the car from her earlier to attend the party.
“He was his usual self when I last saw him,” said a distraught Angel at the Kampar Hospital mortuary yesterday.
Thomas’ friend, Lee Kar Chun, 21, said he found out about the accident from Facebook.
“My friends were sharing a Facebook posting on the incident about locating the victims’ family. I was shocked to see Thomas among the victims and I quickly alerted Angel and his parents,” he added.
The 50-year-old father of Suet Mun, who only wanted to be known as Koh, said his daughter and her friends were rushing back to college to prepare for their examinations.
Koh urged reporters to let his family grieve in peace.
