Accident : Cheras 1st August 2008


I think some of you might have heard about the Cheras accident that happened yesterday morning.. It's crazy i'm telling you... it's really bad... a huge ass 10-tonne lorry filled with rocks.. lost control at a downhill slope... rams ACROSS 2 3-lanes highway ... hitting 7 vehicles.. if you look at my 'drawing' above , the blue box is the lorry... when it crossed the highway that's heading south , it hit a motorcycle ... then managed to ram the divider... which hit a few other vehicles along the way... what's sickening is that ... the lorry only managed to stop after crushing a van against the wall... I only saw the wreckage at the wall when i passed by that area.. and i'm telling you.. it's flat against the wall.. IT's seriously FLAT.. if you saw that impact , you'll know that no one could have survived that crash...

According to Star , the accident happened around 9.30am ...Both sides of the highway was jammed up when I was in that area.. around 4pm.. the van's wreckage was still on the wall.. when i was on my way back around 4am... they've cleared that area and there are people repairing the damaged divider ...

I'm not sure how the lorry could have lost control .. most likely is a brake failure.. and coming downhill with a heavy load..

Here's Star's Article on that accident...
