Car rams into bride-to-be

SERDANG - A 26-year-old bride-to-be was killed on the spot when a car rammed into her as she was walking across Jalan Balakong-Seri Kembangan here with two friends.

Suraidah Banjar was heading to the Mines Shopping Mall with the two women when they were hit by the car coming from Balakong at about 9.15am on Saturday.

The two women, aged 18 and 30, suffered concussions, acting Serdang OCPD Supt Yong Soo Koon said yesterday.

"They were all taken to the Serdang Hospital," he said.

Supt Yong said the forensics team found no "pedestrian crossing" at the scene.

"The road was in good condition and the weather was good," he added.

The case is being investigated under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act for reckless driving. The driver has been detained for questioning.

In the afternoon, Suraidah's family members went to the hospital to claim her body.

An aunt, who wished to remain anonymous, said Suraidah was due to be married after Hari Raya.

"We have been trying to contact her fiance after the accident, but to no avail," she said.

"My niece had always been a cheerful person. If this is her fate, we have to accept it."

Suraidah was from Tawau in Sabah but was staying with her nine siblings in Taman Harmoni Indah, Balakong.

She was a clothes promoter at the mall.
