Miros to undertake detailed study into Genting van crash

PUTRAJAYA: The Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (Miros) has been directed to look into the factors behind the crash of the tour van with 14 passengers.

In a press conference at his ministry here on Wednesday (Feb 9), Transport Minister Anthony Loke said he is very saddened by the incident as he conveyed his condolences to the next-of-kin of the seven who died in the incident.

"I have instructed the Land Public Transport Agency (Apad) and the Road Transport Department (JPJ) to look into the company behind the service.

"At the same time, I have also asked Miros to look into all aspects, including the design of the road, to obtain the full picture behind the tragic incident, which was believed to be due to loss of control while approaching a bend.

"The Miros report will be submitted to the Transport Ministry and the Works Ministry (which oversees road design). We need to take note of the lessons from this to avoid a recurrence," he said at a press conference related to the new framework in airport development financing in Malaysia.
