LAHAD DATU – Six people including a woman and two children were killed after
their car was involved in a collision with a four-wheel-drive vehicle at
KM32 Jalan Lahad Datu-Tawau here last night.
Lahad Datu police chief ACP Hamzah Ahmad in a statement here today said the

Proton Saga car, namely Ismail Mangu, 25, Markus Mae Siku, 52, Parida Perada
Jamuludin, 35, Shahril Ismail, five, and Putri Ismail, two.
He said the accident happened after the Proton Saga which was on its way
