IPOH: Two victims, including a child, died while 14 were found injured after an accident involving eight vehicles at KM317.2 North-South Expressway.

Head of operation Fakrul Razman Md Zin said Gopeng Fire and Rescue Department received the distress call at 10.50pm on Nov 12.

"The accident involved two trailers, two lorries and four cars: a Pajero, Honda Accord, Perodua MyVi and Axia.

"We believe the child was sitting in the Pajero, while the other victim, a woman was in the Perodua MyVi.

"Upon arriving, we saw that some victims were stuck between their vehicles and we had to use hydraulic cutters to retrieve them," he said.

The deceased were sent to the mortuary for a post-mortem, while the remaining injured victims were taken to Hospital Tapah for medical attention.

In a separate incident, Slim River Fire and Safety Department rushed a team to KM326.7 of the North-South Expressway after an accident was reported at 6.06am on Wednesday (Nov 13)

The accident involved just a single vehicle, a lorry, with two people hurt. Rescue mission is on-going.

This story has been corrected. The death count of four cited earlier was incorrect.
