Three killed as car veers into opposite lane


KUANTAN: Three men were killed and four others injured in a road crash involving three vehicles at KM126, Jalan Kuantan-Segamat in Rompin.

Rompin OCPD Deputy Supt Mohd Azahari Mukhtar said the crash, which occurred at 8.50pm on Thursday, involved a trailer and two cars, a Proton Iswara and a Perodua Axia.

He identified those killed in the crash as the trailer attendant, Abdul Raziz Mohdal, 40, from Segamat, Johor; the driver of the Proton Iswara, Mohd Khairol Md Tahir, 36; and his rear passenger, Zairulzaimy Jambi, 18; both with addresses in Pekan, near here, Bernama reported.

“The crash was believed to have happened when Mohd Khairol, who was driving from Segamat, lost control of the wheel.

“This caused the Proton Iswara to veer into the opposite lane and collide with the trailer before crashing into the Proton Axia,” he said in a statement on Friday.

Mohd Azahari added that the bodies were taken to Hospital Muadzam Shah, in Rompin, for post-mortem.
