Nurse dies as car crashes into di­vider

New Straits Times - - News -

BALING: Think­ing that their daugh­ter was busy work­ing at Kulim Hos­pi­tal, an el­derly cou­ple was shocked to find that she was killed in an ac­ci­dent.

Abu Has­san Ah­mad, 63, said Nur A’isah was sup­posed to ar­rive home from work at 8.30am yes­ter­day, but when she failed to show up, he made sev­eral calls to her mo­bile phone.

“She did not pick up my calls. I as­sumed she was work­ing ex­tra hours at the hos­pi­tal.

“While I was on my way to Sun­gai Pe­tani with my wife, Za­harah Saad, 60, I re­ceived the news about the ac­ci­dent from a friend,” he said yes­ter­day.

Abu Has­san said Nur A’isah, 32, was the el­dest of four sib­lings and had a 2-year-old daugh­ter, Nur Azlina Umairah Mus­lan.

He said her hus­band, Mus­lan Hashim, 28, worked with the Royal Malaysian Navy in Kuan­tan, Pa­hang.

He said his con­cern now was his grand­daugh­ter’s well­be­ing.

“Nur Azlina is very close to her mother and she is still too young to un­der­stand what had hap­pened,” he said.

Baling district po­lice chief Su­per­in­ten­dent Shar­if­fud­din Yu­sof said the ac­ci­dent oc­curred about 8.30am when Nur A’isah was trav­el­ling from Kulim to Ta­man Wawasan in Ku­pang here.

He said the vic­tim lost con­trol of her ve­hi­cle, caus­ing it to skid and crash into a road di­vider on the right side of the road.

“The vic­tim died at the scene due to in­juries,” he said.

Shar­if­fud­din said po­lice were in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case un­der Sec­tion 41(1) of the Road Trans­port Act 1987 for reck­less driv­ing.
