Lorry Driver Feverish After Seeing Crashed MPV

MENTAKAB, July 24 (Bernama) -- It was 4.30 am and V. Balamurugan, 23, was, as usual, on the road. He was driving a lorry laden with iron ore from Kuantan to Kuala Lumpur. His brother, V. Saravanan, 21, was with him, fast asleep. Balamurugan was driving at 60 to 70 km per hour. After the lorry passed the Lanchang toll plaza on the East Coast Expressway (LPT), he heard what sounded like a loud thud at the rear of the vehicle. He thought he had blown a tyre.

Balamurugan pulled up on the emergency lane. He and Saravanan got down to have a look (ABOVE) . What they saw made them feverish. "I was shocked to see a Naza Ria multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) lodged under the lorry, and we heard people screaming," he told reporters at the Mentakab police station. Balamurugan, who is from Kampung Makmur in Karak, Pahang, said he saw people trapped in the MPV, some of them unconscious, and there was blood everywhere. He said there were no other vehicles on the road at that time but an MTD Prime highway patrol vehicle arrived soon after to render assistance, followed by firemen and the police. Balamurugan said the place where the accident occurred was a straight stretch of road.

He made a police report on the accident at the police station at about 7 am.

In the 4.30 am accident, nine Myanmar nationals believed to be illegal immigrants were killed, along with two Malaysians. Four other Myanmar nationals, who were badly injured, were sent to the Temerloh Hospital. All the 13 foreigners did not have identification papers on them. The Malaysians have been identified as Fauzi Omar, 41, driver of the MPV from Kampung Pondok Baru, Padang Siam, in Tanah Merah, Kelantan, and his brother-in-law Rozilan Mat Zain, 37, of D3-T3-U4, Jalan P 9B/2, Harmoni Apartments, Precinct 9, Putrajaya.
