Mother and daughter killed in head-on crash

TELUK INTAN: A mother and her two-year-old daughter were killed on the spot while her son escaped with minor injuries when the car they were in crashed head-on with a lorry at Km47 of Jalan Teluk Intan-Sitiawan.

Hilir Perak OCPD Asst Comm Goh Kok Liang said Nur Zuraiyanie Habil, 30, from Seri Manjung, and her daughter Iman Nur Qurratunnisa Muhammad Syafie died while Muhammad Iman Qashrin, five, escaped serious injuries in the crash which happened at 5pm on Saturday.

ACP Goh said the Nur Zuraiyanie, who was driving a Proton Saga, was believed to have veered into the opposite lane while trying to overtake a vehicle in front of her before colliding with the lorry driven by Johari Ahmad, 37.

“The lorry driver tried to swerve to avoid the car but was unable to do so in time.

“The impact from the accident caused the car to catch fire later while the lorry skidded to the side of the road,” said ACP Goh.

“All the victims from the car were extricated by personnel from the Fire and Rescue Department, aided by members of the public.”

The bodies of Nur Zuraiyanie and her daughter were brought to the Teluk Intan Hospital for post-mortem while Muhammad Iman and Johari also received treatment at the same hospital.

ACP Goh said the road was straight but had double-line at the centre.

“The family of the victims have been informed with the assistance of the Manjung police,” he said.
