Two badly hurt in accident involving seven vehicles in Iskandar Puteri


ISKANDAR PUTERI: Two people were badly injured while four others escaped with minor injuries following an accident that involved seven vehicles at KM5.4 Jalan Ismail Sultan, here.

Iskandar Puteri OCPD Asst Comm Rahmat Ariffin said the report of the incident was lodged on Sunday (Feb 11) at 9.21pm at the Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department.

“Initial investigations revealed that the accident started when a car heading towards Johor Baru made a sudden lane change from right to left to evade a crashed motorcycle.

“A second vehicle behind the car had also tried to evade the motorcycle and made an emergency stop at the right lane.

“The sudden stop has caused a motorcycle to crash into the back of the second car; this caused four other motorcycles travelling in the same direction to crash into one another after trying to evade the accident,” he said in a statement here on Tuesday (Feb 13).

The accident led to two people getting badly injured and they are currently being treated at the intensive care unit (ICU) of Sultanah Aminah Hospital (HSA).

“Four others suffered minor injuries while the two car drivers were uninjured,” he said, adding that the case is being investigated under Section 43(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for careless and inconsiderate driving.

Those with information on the case are urged to call the Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department at 07-510 1322.
