Out-of-control bus rams into 10 vehicles on highway 南北大道九洞隧道往怡保处 长途巴士失控猛撞10辆车!

(怡保10日讯)载有28名乘客的长巴,在下坡路段疑煞车器失灵,猛撞前方近10辆交通工具,造成2名女子受伤!这起意外是今午约3时,在南北大道第265.8公里南下路段处,即九洞隧道往怡保处发生。

IPOH: Traffic near the Menora Tunnel on the North-South Expressway came to a standstill after an out-of-control bus rammed into 10 vehicles on the south-bound lane Sunday.

Perak traffic police chief Supt Wan Jamil Wan Chik said the accident occurred at KM265.8 of the highway. He said traffic was already heavy on that stretch when the bus came around a curve on the highway and tried to squeeze between the two cars. “The bus then rammed into the right side of one of the cars before hitting the left side of the another car. The bus did not stop and rammed into a third car in front, causing seven more cars to crash into one another,” he said.

Supt Wan Jamil said the bus driver has been detained for further investigations, while the owners of the damaged cars came to lodge police reports at the Ipoh traffic police office. It is not known how many people were injured in the incident. A video captured on a Road Transport Department surveillance camera has since been widely circulated on social media. It showed that the incident occured at 2.45pm.

道安研究院:提升素质.探讨公交增加验车

(吉隆坡13日讯)大马道路安全研究院(MIROS)将会探讨有关电脑验车中心(PUSPAKOM)强制性定期检查公共交通的次数,是否应该更频繁。大马道路安全研究院(MIROS)总监黄绍文指出,目前的车检是2年只进行一次,车检次数一旦增加,将有助于提升公共交通素质。“但这不仅关系到车检的次数,也包括成本因素,检验的次数越多,业者就必须承担附加的维修费。”

黄绍文是在回应周日在靠近Menora隧道的南北大道(PLUS)南部265.8公里处,所发生的一辆失控快车连环撞上10辆车子车祸时,如是表示。这起车祸引发了技术问题的讨论,包括刹车器故障。他认为,上述车祸不应该归咎于被指为危险的大道路况,因为有关单位已采取最高安全措施来维修道路。“驾驶人士行驶在经常发生车祸的道路时,包括靠近Menora隧道附近,应该更加提高警惕,和有责任确保他们及其他公路使用者的安全。“无论是私家车或公共交通司机都需知道,在经过陡峭区域时必须做些什么,包括依照限速指示放慢速度以及使用低档。Menora隧道(南部)附近今年共发生了4起车祸,包括周日最新发生的连环撞事故。4起车祸之中,有2宗夺命车祸。
