KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): At least three out of seven vehicles hit by a lorry at Persiaran Bukit Rahman Putra 1 here on Thursday (Sept 9) were badly damaged.

Sungai Buloh OCPD Supt Shafa'aton Abu Bakar said that in the 6.20pm incident, the driver of the lorry, laden with tarmac, was believed to have lost control of the vehicle when navigating a downhill bend due to faulty brakes, and crashed into other vehicles waiting at a traffic light, causing a pile-up.

"The lorry crashed into three cars, a four-wheel-drive vehicle, two vans and a crane lorry that were stopped at the traffic lights.

"All the victims, aged between 35 and 57, escaped uninjured, but their vehicles were damaged,” she said in a statement Thursday.

Supt Shafa'aton said the 35-year-old lorry driver was currently under investigation, and a urine test would be carried out to determine if he was driving under the influence of drugs.

She said the case was being investigated under Section 43(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.

This is the second incident in a week involving a lorry crashing into other vehicles, with another accident reported to have occurred in Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur, on Monday (Sept 6), involving five vehicles without any casualties. - Bernama
