The couple passed on while their 2 kids survived, albeit with injuries.

At the time of the accident, the family was driving back to Singapore after a visit to their relative in Rompin.

The 41-year-old driver, Mr Chua Keh Loing, lost control of the wheel and went onto the opposite lane with oncoming traffic, thus the collision happened.

An ambulance was immediately dispatched to the scene upon receiving the news of the accident.

According to Malaysian newspaper Sin Chew Daily News, Mr Chua died at the scene while Mrs Chua, 43, sustained serious injuries and was conveyed to Tangkak Hospital where she later passed on.

Their children — an eight-year-old son and a six-year-old daughter — were also injured, and are being nursed at the same hospital.

Mrs Chua’s sister told  Sin Chew Daily News that her family has not informed the children about their parents’ death as they were worried about how they would react to this piece of news.

She added that they have been asking for their parents.

The driver of the SUV and his three passengers also sustained injuries.

Mr Chua, a Singaporean permanent resident, was working as a clerk in Singapore and his family lived in Woodlands.

Some neighbours shared that the Chuas visited Malaysia thrice a year and would usually commute by train.

A neighbour, 59-year-old Ms Lin, said that it could be the first time that the family had driven to their relative’s house.

She added that the car that Mr Chua drove belong to his brother-in-law.

The couple’s wake will be held in Seremban.
