Baby boy killed in multi-vehicle crash in Jasin


JASIN: A baby boy was killed while travelling to Kluang, Johor with his parents to perform Aqiqah, a religious ritual performed by Muslims when a child is born.

Jasin OCPD Deputy Supt Ahmad Jamil Radzi said the two-month-old sustained serious head injuries in the accident involving multiple vehicles along KM184 of the North-South Expressway (Southbound), near here at 11.20am on Tues (Feb 27).

"The deceased's 35-year-old father is an assistant investigation officer at the Traffic Department of Putrajaya police headquarters and was driving his family from Kuala Lumpur to his hometown in Kluang.

"The child succumbed to injuries at Melaka Hospital while being treated at about 3pm (Feb 27) while his 34-year-old mother and three-year-old brother escaped unscathed," he said on Tuesday (Feb 27).

DSP Ahmad Jamil identified the deceased as Mohamad Sufyan Mohamad Shahizwan.

He said the accident involved a trailer, a lorry, three cars and a four-wheel-drive driven by a 39-year-old French national.

He said all the remaining victims of the accident sustained only minor injuries.

DSP Ahmad Jamil said the accident occurred when the trailer, who was also 39-year-old, lost control of his vehicle before ramming into the rear of the car driven by the deceased's father.

He said the other oncoming vehicles then rammed into the trailer.

DSP Ahmad Jamil added that the accident is being investigated under Section 41 of the Road Transport Act 1987.
