KUANTAN: Three men were killed after a double-decker express bus they were travelling in crashed at Km81 Jalan Lipis-Merapoh near Kampung Kubang Rusa, about 90km from Kuala Lipis, early this morning.
They were identified as the bus driver, Ab Aziz Daud, 63, and two passengers – Shukri Mat Noor, 55, and Hossain Kamal, 41, a Bangladeshi.
Lipis police chief Azli Noor said the accident occurred at 1.50am when the bus, carrying 18 passengers, was travelling from Kota Bharu, Kelantan, to Kuala Lumpur.
“The driver is believed to have lost control of the vehicle while navigating a corner before it skidded and landed on its side,” he told Bernama.
Six other passengers and the bus’s second driver were injured in the accident.
