Three men, including father and son, killed in Pontian car crash

PONTIAN: Three men, including a father and his son, were killed while two others were injured in an accident at KM5.7 Jalan Parit Semerah-Parit Kudus, here, at 5pm Thursday (March 30).

Pontian OCPD Supt Mohammad Shofee Tayib said the victims, Muhamad Shah Rizal Jamaludin, 22, his father Jamaludin Abd Wahab, 58, and their relative Muhamad Nor Azlan Roz, 28, who were travelling in a white car died at the scene.

He said another passenger, Mohd Faizal Saari, 35, and the driver of a black vehicle Donny Tauh, 20, were injured.

He said the white car was believed to be headed to Parit Kudus from Parit Semerah, while the other vehicle was from the opposite direction.

"Initial investigations found that Muhamad Shah Rizal lost control and crashed into the black vehicle before the car plunged into a watery ditch, resulting in all of them being trapped," he said in a statement Thursday night.

Mohammad Shofee said Muhamad Shah Rizal, Muhamad Nor Azlan and Jamaludin succumbed to their injuries and were pronounced dead by the medical officer despatched to the scene.

"The bodies were sent to the Pontian Hospital Forensic Unit for further action, while Mohd Faizal and Donny are receiving treatment at the same hospital," he said, adding that the case is being investigated under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987. - Bernama
