JPJ compiling inspection, safety audit of trailer involved in fatal accident in Putrajaya

PETALING JAYA: The Road Transport Department (JPJ) is in the midst of compiling its Inspection and Safety Audit (JISA) into the trailer which left two dead near Putrajaya recently.

Its deputy director general (planning/operations) Aedy Fadly Ramli said they were instructed to carry out the audit by the minister immediately after the accident occurred.

"I can confirm that we are involved in investigating the accident. We are compiling the JISA and will be handing it over to the Land Public Transport Agency on Monday (Sept 25) for further action.

"We received the accident report from the police on Friday so we are working now to finish the report on our end," he told reporters when met at the Kesas Toll Plaza on Friday.

When asked how his department would ascertain if the lorry was overloaded since its load was scattered on the road when it overturned, Aedy Fadli said their investigators would not just be limited to gathering evidence from the scene of the accident.

"Besides the evidence at the scene, our investigators will also go to the location where the lorry got its load from," he said.

It was reported that two motorcyclists lost their lives and several others were injured after a lorry collided with multiple vehicles in Jalan Persiaran Utara near Putrajaya here on Sept 20.

Putrajaya OCPD Asst Comm A. Asmadi Abdul Aziz said the accident occurred at about 10.14am when the two victims and 11 others stopped their vehicles to make way for a traffic police convoy assigned to Le Tour de Langkawi (LTdL) escort duty.

The victims were identified as two men aged 25 and 39.

Further checks revealed that six other victims who were injured were sent to Hospital Serdang and Hospital Putrajaya for treatment.
