MIRI, Feb 9: Three people had a close shave with death when they lost control of the car they were travelling in and rammed a road divider before slamming into a lamp post along Jalan Dato Sri Balan Seling here last night.

It was believed that the accident occurred at about 10pm and all the victims — two of them aged 28 and the other 30 — were rushed to Miri Hospital by ambulance.


One victim suffered bodily injuries, while the other two sustained hand and leg injuries.

Sarawak Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department chief Supt Alexson Naga Chabu, when contacted today, said the trio were heading towards Pujut 7 from Permyjaya when the mishap happened.

“The car rammed into the road divider and crashed into a lamp post, which is located next to a tree,” he said. — DayakDaily
