HULU SELANGOR: A driver died following a multi-vehicle pile-up along the North-South Expressway here.

Hulu Selangor OCPD Supt Suffian Abdullah said the incident occurred at around 3am near KM413.1 of the highway here.

"Three vehicles were involved in the accident which caused a 5km traffic jam that lasted for over two hours.

"Our investigations revealed that the accident occurred after a Mitsubishi trailer truck rammed into an Isuzu lorry.
