KUALA LUMPUR: An immediate investigation will be made into the collision involving two LRT trains on the Kelana Jaya line, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
The Transport Minister said he rushed to the scene upon hearing news of the incident.
"I'm currently at Avenue K, right after receiving news about an incident involving two LRT trains.
"Injured passengers have been rushed to the nearest hospital for treatment. Further investigations on the cause of the accident will start immediately," said Dr Wee in a Facebook post on Monday (May 24).
Police said 47 individuals who suffered serious injuries and 166 had minor injuries in a collision that took place at the Ampang Park LRT station involving two trains.
All of the injured will receive medical treatment at Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL).
On social media, several pictures and videos of the incident have made rounds, depicting a person bleeding profusely from lacerations to the arm while others were seen lying on the floor.
There were pieces of broken glass strewn across the floor, as passengers that seemed disorientated began to check on each other.
