Road crash kills 3, injures 4 in Rompin

THREE men were killed and four others injured in a road crash involving three vehicles at Kilometre 126 Jalan Kuantan-Segamat in Rompin last night.

Rompin district police chief DSP Mohd Azahari Mukhtar said the crash, which occurred at 8.50pm involved a trailer and two cars, a Proton Iswara and a Perodua Axia.

He identified those killed in the crash as trailer attendant Abdul Raziz Mohdal, 40, from Segamat, Johor, Iswara car driver Mohd Khairol Md Tahir, 36, and his rear passenger, Zairulzaimy Jambi, 18, both from Kuantan.

“The crash was believed to have happened when Khairol, who was driving from Segamat, lost control of his vehicle, causing the car to veer into the opposite lane and collided with the trailer before crashing into a Proton Axia car,” he said in a statement today.

Azahari said the bodies were taken to Hospital Muadzam Shah, in Rompin, for post mortem. – Bernama, August 5, 2022.
