IPOH: A tanker lorry transporting industrial chemicals overturned and sprang a leak on a south-bound lane of the North-South Expressway here, forcing temporary closure of the highway at that stretch.
Ipoh Fire and Rescue Station chief P. Sumasivam said two cars rammed into the overturned tanker and four people, one of them the lorry driver, were injured in the accident some 3km from the Jelapang toll plaza at 7.20am yesterday.
Sumasivam said traffic was diverted to the federal road as a Hazmat (Hazardous Materials) Unit team from the Pasir Puteh Fire and Rescue Station cleaned up the spot.
He also said the lorry was carrying 23 tonnes of industrial chemicals from Prai, Penang, to Kuantan, Pahang, when the accident happened.
The injured were sent to the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital. — Bernama
