PETALING JAYA: Police will charge the trailer driver who smashed into 13 vehicles, killing one person, with reckless driving.
Selangor traffic police chief Supt Che Hussin Omar said the 64-year-old driver was being treated at the Serdang Hospital and would be arrested after he was discharged.
“Based on witness accounts, the driver was speeding before smashing into the vehicles at the junction.
“We have learnt that he is suffering from diabetes and under medication. We will await a medical report from the hospital to determine if he was not well when the accident occurred,” he said, adding that the driver would be investigated under Section 41 of the Road Transport Act 1987 for causing death by reckless or dangerous driving.
Supt Che Hussin said the four accident victims being treated in the hospital were in serious but stable condition.
The trailer, heading for Puchong Jaya from Kinrara, was said to have lost control on Monday afternoon and rammed into a traffic light before ploughing into seven cars, a lorry and five motorcycles from the opposite direction.
Myanmar national U Kwan Lin, 64, was killed when the car he was driving was pinned under the trailer.
