KUANTAN: It happened in the blink of an eye, said Nurulhuda Ahmad Razali, one of the victims who was hit by a car during the Run Out Pahang Marathon 2018 here on Sunday (March 11).

"I was just running and then I heard a loud noise from behind. Everything happened so fast, like the blink of an eye, and I was just shocked. Before I knew it, I was thrown to the ground in pain," said the 32-year-old lecturer.

She added that she remained conscious after the impact but was unable to move her leg.

"Things were a bit blurry, but the ambulance came quickly and took me to HTAA (Hospital Tengku Ampuan Afzan)," said Nurulhuda.

She added that she was only a few hundred metres from the finish line when the accident occurred.

Nurulhuda also said that she regularly travels around the country to participate in running events.

"I have gone for similar events in Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya before and everything was fine, so this is a traumatic experience for me," she said.
