Five teachers involved in bus crash recovering, says Zahid

KUALA LUMPUR: The five teachers still undergoing treatment after being involved in a tour bus accident at Jalan Kuantan-Segamat in Rompin, Pahang, on Sunday (June 9) are in stable condition and recovering, says Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

In a Facebook post, the Deputy Prime Minister said that his officers, Datuk Fadzlette Othman Merican and Seriwani Sabtu visited the teachers on his behalf on Wednesday (June 12).

He said three of the teachers, Rohana Abd Rahman, Siti Azurah Kamarudin and Nurzafirah Zakaria are receiving treatment at the Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital in Kuantan, Pahang. The other two, Hasni Mat Isa and Norita Che Mohamad, are warded at the Segamat Hospital in Johor.

"I pray that everything will go smoothly for all those involved in the accident and that they are blessed with recovery and good health,” he said.

Ahmad Zahid, the Rural and Regional Development Minister, also expressed his condolences to the families of the victims who died in the crash.

Ahmad Zahid also thanked the State Education Department and the medical centres in Pahang, Johor, and Melaka for providing immediate assistance and full cooperation to all teachers involved in the crash.

In the road accident, four people died, and 35 were injured after a tour bus reportedly overturned after losing control and crashing into a trailer transporting steel coils.

The bus passengers, mostly teachers from SK Jeram, Masjid Tanah, Melaka, and their children, were on their way to Terengganu for a benchmarking programme.

The deceased were SK Jeram senior assistant Hasnatul Adilah Hassan, 48, second bus driver Hadi Asyraf Mad Idris, 29, school operations assistant Hamzah Ahmad, 60, and teacher Dahlia Ahmad, 52. – Bernama
