A lorry driver was arrested after he was caught speeding which caused an accident involving five other vehicles and one death.
According to Harian Metro, the incident happened near a hotel on the Damansara-Puchong Highway (LDP) on 9 February at 1.40pm. During the incident, a 35-year-old delivery rider was severely injured and later died at Serdang Hospital while receiving treatment.
Selangor Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) chief Superintendent Azman Shari’at said the initial investigation found that the accident occurred when the lorry driven by the 47-year-old suspect was driving at a high speed before losing control of the vehicle after exiting the Bukit Jalil-Puchong Highway.
“The lorry collided with a van before colliding with a Yamaha Y125ZR motorcycle and a Perodua Axia at the same time, causing the motorcyclist to fall to the ground,” he said.
“The lorry, which was still out of control at the time, then collided with the back of a Perodua Myvi and Toyota CHR before slipping under the bridge and stopping there.”
Azman said the lorry driver has been detained and will be undergoing alcohol and urine tests.
He said a check found that the lorry driver did not have any previous criminal records and added that the case is now being investigated under Section 41 (1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.
If convicted, the lorry driver could face imprisonment for a term of up to 10 years and a fine of up to RM20,000.
