Elderly woman dies in multi-car accident near Rembau

KUALA LUMPUR: An elderly woman has died in an accident involving three cars at KM 32.5 of Jalan Seremban-Tampin at 1.15pm on Monday (June 3).

Rembau police chief DSP Shaik Abd Kadar Shaik Mohamed said the woman was on her way home after a class at Madrasah Bongek.

The accident involved a Perodua Axia driven by the 66-year-old victim, Zahariah Shariff, and two other cars, a Proton Iswara and a Proton Wira.

"The victim, coming from the direction of Rembau towards Tampin, apparently lost control and swerved into the opposite lane before hitting the Proton Iswara driven by a 49-year-old man heading from the opposite direction.

"In the accident, the Proton Wira driven by a 22-year-old man from the rear of the Proton Iswara could not avoid hitting the victim’s car on the left," he said.

Shaik said the woman died at the scene with severe injuries to her body and head. The driver of the Proton Wira was unhurt, while the driver of the Proton Iswara received treatment at Rembau Hospital.

The case is being investigated under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for reckless driving. – Bernama
