Double tragedy in Malaysian billionaire's family

MALACCA - The nephew of billionaire and philanthropist Tan Sri Vincent Tan died when the vehicle he was travelling in crashed into the rear of a lorry.

Kevin Tan Eng Hoe, 36, who was a passenger in the Toyota Vellfire, died on the spot during the 6.45am crash yesterday at Km182 southbound near Jasin along the North-South Expressway.
