Mother, daughter killed in Sabah car-tour bus collision

KOTA KINABALU: A mother and her daughter were killed when their car collided with a tour bus at the Papar-Beaufort road on Friday. 
The 45-year-old driver and her 87-year-old mother were with two other passengers, a 31-year-old woman and a seven-year-old boy, when the incident occurred at about 3pm.

Papar police chief Deputy Supt Ladamah Sulaiman said the driver had swerved into the opposite lane and collided with the tour bus before its engine caught fire.

However, passers-by managed to help douse the fire when they saw the accident and sent three of the victims to a hospital.

The driver was pinned to her seat following the impact of the crash and had to wait for firemen's help to remove her. 
He said the driver was pronounced dead upon arrival at the district hospital while her mother died a few hours later.

The two other victims are in critical condition, he added.

The tour bus driver and a few passengers sustained minor bruises. 
The case is being investigated under the Road Transport Act while witnesses to the mishap have been urged to come forward to assist in the probe.
