Woman killed in freak accident


GEORGE TOWN: A woman was killed when a car rammed into her, then crashed through a retaining wall and crushed her beneath it after the vehicle plunged 6m onto the road below at a condominium in Island Park here.

The victim, Kim Hui Ping (pic), 49, died at the scene while the driver, a 71-year-old woman, sustained chest injuries.



Both the women were residents of the condominium.

Kim was believed to be walking towards her car when the freak accident occurred.

Penang Fire and Rescue Department operation officer Yusri Zakaria said they took an hour to extricate Kim’s body pinned underneath the mangled vehicle.

Firemen rescued the elderly woman who was taken to the Penang Hospital for treatment.

George Town OCPD Asst Comm Soffian Santong said the victim was walking along the condominium driveway when the accident occurred at about 11.30am.

He said the driver rammed into the woman, before knocking down the retaining wall and plunging onto the road below.
