KUALA LUMPUR: The police have arrested a 40-year-old man who was at the wheel of a Lexus car that crashed into six vehicles on the Bukit Jalil Highway last Saturday (March 4) after he was found to be driving under the influence of drugs.

Cheras OCPD Asst Comm Zam Halim Jamaluddin said in the incident, which occurred at about 10.30am near the Lumba Kuda Roundabout, the man, who is a local, lost control of his car and crashed into six other vehicles that had stopped at the traffic light before overturning.

"However, the accident only caused damage to the vehicles and no one was injured,” he said in a statement here Monday (March 6).

He said the 40-year-old man was taken to the Kuala Lumpur traffic police station and a urine test conducted on him found that he was positive for marijuana.
