Driver, attendant killed in lorry crash near Nilai on Saturday (June 19)

NILAI: A 48-year-old driver and a 28-year-old attendant were killed when their lorry crashed along KM283.6 of the North South Expressway near here on Saturday (June 19), says Nilai OCPD Supt Mohd Fazley Ab Rahman.

N.Vasutheven and his attendant R. Mohan Raj were transporting poultry from here to Perak when the lorry ploughed into the guardrail along the highway and crashed into a pillar after losing control at about 3am.

Supt Mohd Fazley said motorists managed to pull Vasutheven from the burning lorry but Mohan Raj was trapped and was burnt to death.

He added that Vasutheven's 16-year-old son was also in the lorry but managed to get out of the vehicle on his own.

"Although the driver was initially saved, he died a short while later due to severe head injuries," he said, adding that the case is being probed under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.
