A nine-month-old baby girl died in a horrific accident involving three vehicles.
According to Jelebu Deputy Chief of Police, Deputy Superintendent Kamarul Rizal Jenal, the accident occurred at Kilometer 19.3 Jalan Seremban-Simpang Pertang at 7.30pm last night, the New Straits Times reported.
In the freak accident, a baby girl who was held by her father was flung out of her mother’s car.
Kamarul said the mother, Lim Hui Chee, 25, was driving a Toyota Vios on her way back home to Titi from Seremban at the time of the accident.
“The victim lost control of her car when she took a turn and crossed into the opposite lane of oncoming traffic before colliding with a Honda Civic coming from Kuala Klawang.
“The victim’s car is believed to have spun several times before being hit by a Proton Saga which was also coming from the Kuala Klawang direction. Because of the impact of the accident, Wong Qan Ton, who was at that time being held by her father Wong Ting Sing, 26, was thrown out of the car into the middle of the road,” Kamarul was quoted saying.
He added that the Proton Saga driver Luqman Al Hakim Fouzar, 23, from Simpang Durian sustained neck injuries.
The driver and passenger of the Honda Civic escaped unhurt.
It was reported that the baby, who suffered severe head injuries, was sent to Jelebu Hospital before being referred to Tuanku Jaafar Hospital (HTJ).
However, she was confirmed dead at about 7.50am.
Kamarul said the police are investigating the incident under Section 41 (1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.
