ALOR SETAR - A quarrel between a husband and wife led to a car chase that ended in an accident involving three vehicles.
The husband chased his wife, who had their five-year-old child in the car, through town.
A source said that when they reached a traffic lights junction near SMK Agama Darussaadah, the husband got out of his car, stomped to his wife's and started scolding her and kicking her car.
He said witnesses then saw the wife speed off when the light turned green and the chase continued.
The husband tried ramming his car into his wife's car near a restaurant in Kampung Titi Besar.
"She tried to avoid his car, lost control and crashed," he said.
"Motorists who witnessed it said right after she crashed, the husband also lost control of his car and rammed into another car."
The driver in the other car was a Royal Malaysian Air Force personnel, his wife and child.
All three were taken to the hospital and were believed to be in the "red zone".
A spokesman for the Fire and Rescue Department said they received a distress call at 1.57pm and a team was rushed to the scene of the accident.
