Bus crashes into house of elderly couple

ALOR SETAR, 21 Jan 2009: Housewife Aishah Ahmad, 82, was jolted from sleep today by a tour bus which slammed into the master bedroom of her double-storey house in Kampung Alor Senjaya, Titi Gajah, here.

Her husband, Ismail Drahman, 84, was in the bathroom when he heard the crash at about 8am and rushed out calling for his wife.

He said he summoned his neighbours when he could not open the door of the master bedroom and they had to get his wife out by tearing down part of a wall.  

Aishah was slightly injured on the left shoulder and received treatment at the Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital.

Kota Setar Traffic Police investigating officer Insp Othman Abdullah said the tour bus was travelling from Jitra to the police training centre in Anak Bukit here to fetch 40 police constables when the accident happened. — Bernama
