We often go about our days completely ignorant of the fact that at any given moment, this all could end. We hop on a plane never thinking it might be our last ride, we eat never assuming it could be our last meal, well for these 3 friends, the latter happened and this entire ordeal is tragic indeed. Let’s look into it.


So it has been reported that a convoy of 3 friends on 3 Yamaha Y15ZR motorcycles returning home from Temerloh after a hearty catfish meal crashed head on into a Peugeot car on the highway near Felda Jengka 17 on Saturday (9 September 2023).
