Bad attitude of drivers to blame for high fatality rate on Malaysian roads, say netizens

MANGLED HORROR...Two brothers, aged 16 and 22, perished after the car they were travelling in collided with an excursion bus along the Kuantan bypass near the Kuantan Court Complex on Wednesday. The eldest sibling, aged 25, and a 21-year-old sister, survived the horrific crash but sustained serious injuries. The car they were in had earlier hit the back of another car before being rammed by the bus, which was trailing behind. Kuantan OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Jasmani Yusoff said the case was being investigated under Section 41 (1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for reckless driving resulting in death. Firemen had to extricate the remains of the siblings from the badly mangled wreckage. - By SIMON KHOO
