On Monday (Nov 28), The Star reported that passengers of an express bus were injured when the bus rammed into the rear of a trailer on the North-South Expressway.

The incident occurred at Jasin, Melaka, at about 3.30am Monday while the bus was on the way to Kuala Lumpur from Singapore.

It was carrying 27 passengers, 16 of whom sustained minor injuries. There was no loss of lives.

One of the passengers on the bus is the son of Suria FM radio DJ Sharifah Shahira.

Airell Zulkifli, 18, had travelled to Singapore to attend an animation festival there and was on his way back when the unfortunate incident happened.

Sharifah told a news portal that she only found out about what happened to her son after he came home late and she noticed an injury on his forehead.

Apparently, the teenager tried to hide the fact that he was involved in the accident from his mother and only told the truth when she forced it out of him.

He told her that he and his friends were brought to a hospital in an ambulance from the accident site.

Sharifah told mStar, The Star's Malay-language portal: “We took him to get an X-ray, and thankfully there's no internal injuries.

On Instagram Story, Sharifah uploaded a video showing where Airell's teeth were chipped, and the bruising on his forehead, nose and leg.

Earlier, Sharifah had shared about her son’s accident on Instagram with a photo of the bus where the front of the vehicle is completely smashed.

She wrote in the caption that she's grateful that he's safe at home after coming back so much later than the time he was supposed to.

In the caption Sharifah wrote: “He didn’t want to tell me that he was in an accident. Just that the bus broke down. Luckily, he sat at the at back of the bus.”
