Death and destruction!

truck

We were driving up north to Penang this morning when we came across a rather epic accident involving a trailer (complete with its load), truck and a rather unfortunate and outmatched car. It jammed up the PLUS highway and upon closer inspection, the car’s driver side compartment was completely decimated.

You can’t see it clearly coz I didn’t have time to pull out my digicam so all photos are taken using the iPad. There was a policeman taking photos of the wreck in the car too – I don’t believe for a second that anyone could have survived that.

The driver side of the car was nearly sheered off and when it came to its final resting place in a ditch, it was facing against the traffic.

Anyway, this just goes to show that you can never be too careful on the road. Drive safe and watch out for swerving trailers. We almost got acquainted with one carrying a cargo of timber logs just now. -_-

      Ya it seems PLUS always have a lot of accidents. Had someone violently rear end the car behind us last time I went to Melaka.

      The momentum nearly hit us too. Close one.

  1. LOL , shouldn’t you concentrate on driving instead of taking pic ? Thank god nothing really serious .

    By the way , how was fame yesterday ?

    • Heh. I wasn’t driving, my friend drove to Penang, this happened then. I drove back to KL.

      It was fun! Freedom Penang had free flow beer. :)

  2. HB, driving can be dangerous at time. My mother was in a car accident a few months ago. She was driving and her car a benz now gone total. It dark and rainy at night and other car hit her and another car. All drivers were Chinese and police said all should paid own damage and repair; Well there always one that see he hit jackpot when he saw a benz involve in it. He 14,000. while his damage cause by other dirver 1,000. He want from my mother or try to get it from her insurance. Sometime not good to own a higher car there people out there trying to milk you.

    • Sorry to hear that Vickie!

      Yeah, there are people like that, sorry your mom was involved in an accident.

      Why not claim insurance?

    • Thanks Eiling! :)

      Yup, we got back to KL safe. It took us 4 hours though…lots of random jams at certain areas on Sunday.

    • Yeah, I’m pretty sure it’ll be near impossible to survive this one.

      The entire driver compartment was crushed right through the back from the front.

      I wonder how many accidents happen on the PLUS highway per day.

      I know there’s a lot during festive seasons when people go back…
