Twelve Singaporeans injured in crash on NSE near Pagoh

JOHOR BARU: Twelve Singaporeans were injured, one seriously, in an accident involving four vehicles at KM139.9 southbound of the North-South Expressway in Pagoh, Muar.

Muar district police chief ACP Raiz Mukhliz Azman Aziz said the 12 were travelling in a van which was involved in the accident at 5.15pm on Sunday (March 19) with an express bus ferrying 28 passengers as well as two sports utility vehicles (SUV).

All 28 bus passengers escaped unhurt but the bus driver and a passenger in the car sustained minor injuries.

"Initial investigations showed that the bus travelling from Melaka to Johor Baru on the left lane hit the tour van in front of it before the van rammed into the back of a SUV.

"The SUV then hit the SUV in front," he said in a statement on Monday (March 20).

Raiz Mukhliz said all the injured were taken to the Sultanah Fatimah Specialist Hospital in Muar.

The case is being investigated under Section 43(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987. – Bernama
