Terrifying ordeal: The couple trapped inside the car after the accident at the Kuala Perlis-Changlun Expressway.

ARAU: A vacation for a family of six to Langkawi turned tragic when their car crashed into some trees along the highway.

Driver Shazrin Sajat and his wife Norhana Sawal, both 30, were trapped in the mangled vehicle for about half an hour before firemen freed them with power tools.

Their daughter, Nursyazani Shazrin, four, and niece Nur Ufairah Afiqa Mohd Zaini, three, who were in the backseat, died in hospital.

Norhana’s brother Mohd Zaini, 41, fractured his right leg while his daughter Nur Uzma Aqilah, six, escaped with light injuries.

Shazrin said his family had gone to Langkawi during the Hari Raya holiday and were on the way back to Johor.

“My car suddenly went out of control. I saw that my daughter and niece were unconscious after the crash while my brother-in-law was groaning in pain.

“My wife hurt her neck and broke both hands and her left leg,” he said.

Arau district police chief Supt Nanda Maarof said the accident happened at Kilometre six of the Kuala Perlis-Changlun Expressway at about 8pm on Wednesday.
