BESUT: A teacher of Sekolah Kebangsaan Langkap, Setiu, was killed when his car collided with an oil tanker at Kilometre 54 Jalan Kuala Terengganu-Jerteh near Kampung Sungai Tong yesterday.
Ahmad Yusrizal Yusof, 30, who sustained serious facial and body injuries died on the spot in the 1.35pm crash.
Setiu district police chief DSP Rohaizat Mohd Ani said the accident happened while Ahmad Yusrizal, who was driving a Perodua Viva car, was on his way to pick up his wife, Azlina Mohd Razali, from school.
He said Ahmad Yusrizal was believed to have lost control of the wheel when taking a sharp bend, causing the car to skid and crashed head-on with the oil tanker which was on its way to Kota Baharu.
Rohaizat said police had yet to obtain information on the oil tanker driver, who was believed to be slightly injured.
The accident caused a traffic congestion and among those caught in the jam were participants in the Kembara Merdeka convoy who were on their way to attend a breaking fast ceremony at the As Solihin Mosque near Padang Luas, Jerteh. — Bernama
