CHUKAI: A couple were killed and their three children slightly injured after their multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) crashed at KM274 of the East Coast Highway 2 (LPT2) near the Cheneh toll plaza exit here Saturday (Feb 4).

Arbain Baharudin, 47, and his wife, Rosmawati Bakar @ Lalar, 48, a teacher at SMA Persekutuan Kajang, died on the spot of serious head and body injuries in the 4pm accident.

Their children, Farah Najwa, 20; Fatin Najla; 10; and Faikal Nabila, eight; were treated at Hospital Kemaman for light injuries to the face, legs and hands.

Kemaman OCPD Supt Hanyan Ramlan said the MPV was believed to have gone out of control and hit the road railings on the left, before spinning several times and crashing into the highway divider.

The impact caused the couple to be thrown between 5m and 10m from their vehicle, he added.

The family were said to be on their way home to Kerteh in Terengganu after sending another son to Politekniik Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah in Kuantan, Pahang. - Bernama
