BUTTERWORTH, 14 March 2017:

A car driven by a woman, reportedly against traffic flow, crashed into another car at KM134 of the North-South Expressway in Seberang Perai Tengah – killing a man in an accident also involving a motorcycle and three other vehicles.

In the 7.50am accident near the northbound intersection to Permatang Pauh, Mohamad Fandi Rosli, 26, died on the spot due to serious head and body injuries.

It is understood that he was from Sungai Petani, Kedah, and was on his way home after work at a factory in Perai.

Police believe the 19-year-old woman who was driving a Proton Gen-2 was drunk.

“The Proton Gen-2 was driven against traffic flow from Sungai Dua heading to Butterworth and crashed into the front of the Perodua Kelisa driven by Mohamad Fandi.

“The crash caused the car driven by the woman to veer to the left and crash into a motorcycle before it spun several times and hit two cars and a factory van,” said Seberang Perai Tengah district police chief, ACP Nik Ros Azhan Nik Abdul Hamid.

He said the woman, a motorcyclist and the three drivers of the other vehicles suffered minor injuries and were sent to Seberang Jaya Hospital. The body of Mohamad Fandi was also sent to the same hospital.

In JOHOR BAHRU, three people – including two siblings, were killed when the Proton Persona car they were travelling in went out of control and skidded into a ravine at KM60, on Jalan Kota Tinggi-Sungai Rengit, Kota Tinggi, today.

Kota Tinggi police chief Supt Rahmat Othman said the victims identified as Norhaizam Ngatino, 34, his brother, Muhammad Izwan, 23 and friend, Mohamad Inderul Zain, 32, died at the scene due to severe head injuries.

Another brother of Norhaizam, Hisyamuddin, 26, who was also in the vehicle sustained severe injuries and was being treated at Kota Tinggi Hospital, he said in a statement.

Rahmat said the incident occurred around 10am – Norhaizam who was driving, was on the way to Sungai Rengit from Kota Tinggi.

The victim reportedly lost control of the car and hit the divider, causing the vehicle to fall into an 8m-deep ravine.
