KULAI: A 28-year-old woman was issued a RM2,000 fine after pleading guilty to causing an accident on the North-South Expressway (NSE) in March this year.

Lee Jia Ming, a businesswoman, pleaded guilty after charges were read in front of Magistrate Sharifah Maleeha Syed Hussin at the Magistrate's Court here on Tuesday (May 31).

In the incident, footage of which went viral, a pickup truck driven by Lee is seen forcing other cars out of the way on the NSE and rams into a white supercar, which was travelling in a convoy.

The convoy is then seen stopping in the middle of the highway, preventing all cars – including the pickup truck – from moving.
