I received an SMS from one of my ex-students last night, saying that he met with an accident very near UiTM Segamat (it happened opposite the Chinese cemetery, to be exact). He asked whether I knew any workshop around Segamat, so I called him back to let him know that I will be there.
The car wasn't even his. It was his roommate's. That means he's in deep trouble now. On the way to UiTM Segamat, I saw another accident in Tasik Alai. I saw a Waja and the flashing lights of a tow truck parked beside the road but I didn't stop.
When I arrived nearby the Chinese cemetery, I saw a Satria crashed into a lamp post. It was surrounded by the police and a few male students from the campus. Apparently, he had hit the lamp post. Since he was busy answering questions from the police, I approached his traumatic girlfriend (also my ex-student) and she sobbed as she poured out the details of the accident.
By the way, here's the picture of the beat-up Satria:

The tow truck that I saw just now happened to drive past, towing the Waja behind it. I was surprised as I saw the driver of that Waja. Incidentally, it was also one of my ex-student. (The victims were all Part 5 students). But nobody was hurt, thank goodness.
Hari Raya Aidilfitri is just around the corner.. so for those who are driving back to your hometown, please drive carefully and please think of your loved ones. It's better to be safe than sorry.
