At 7 am her brother Ahmad Basyir, 27, and sisters Siti Fatimah, 20, and Saiedah, 15 were killed after the Perodua Kancil they were travelling in crashed at kilometre 165.8 of the East Coast Expressway (LPT1) here.
Her youngest sister, Adawiyah, 11 sustained a serious head injury and is now being treated at Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Hospital (HoASHAS) in Temerloh.
