BAHAU: Three people died in a road accident near here when a factory bus and two cars collided. 

The victims who were pinned under the wreckage, died on the spot. 

The remains of driver Lian Teck Chee, 26, of Triang, Pahang, and his passenger Wong Ah Fatt, 37, of Kampung Baru, Gemas, had to be extricated by firemen as they were both crushed in the Mitsubishi Lancer they were travelling in.  

Ee Yong Huat, 33, of Kampung Baru Tanah Merah, Port Dickson, who was driving a Proton Wira, was also killed. 

His wife, Chong Chia Choy, 29, and children Cheng Wee, four, and one-year-old Chay Seng suffered serious injuries. 

They were rushed to the Kuala Pilah Hospital by passers-by. Cheng Wee, who broke his leg, is in stable condition.  

It is learnt that the bus had been on its way to pick up workers from an electronic factory in Malacca when it skidded at KM10 of the Bahau-Rompin road at about 7.10am.  

Up to press time, the driver of the bus, in his 30s, had yet to lodge a police report. He was said to have fled the scene after the incident.  

State traffic enforcement officer Insp Shamsuddin Yahya urged eyewitnesses and the bus driver to come forward to help in the investigation.
