At 6.37pm Friday, 4 September, two KTM trains collided against each other near Kuang Station in Selangor

Of the two, one was a Komuter train and the other was an Electric Train Service (ETS).

According to KTM Berhad, the accident happened at 6.37pm.

The ETS train was travelling from Padang Besar to KL Sentral station while the KTM Komuter train was travelling from Tanjung Malim station to Sungai Buloh.

There were a total of 123 passengers in both the trains

The ETS train was carrying 93 passengers, while the three-coach KTM Komuter train was carrying 30 passengers.

A passenger onboard the Komuter train was injured in the accident.

"The passenger who suffered a minor injury to the hand was given emergency treatment by KTMB staff at the Kuang Station before (the train resumed its) journey to the Sungai Buloh Station," Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) chief executive officer Datuk Kamarulzaman Zainal said in a statement.

Meanwhile, other passengers were transferred to other trains.

The cause of the accident has not been identified yet

"We are studying all aspects and it is still too early to determine what caused the accident," KTMB's Head of Strategic Communications Ahmad Asri Khalbi was quoted as saying by Astro Awani.

According to Asri, while the accident will affect the itinerary for a period of several days, it won't cause major changes to the schedule and KTM will give priority to passenger trains.

"Currently, the delay only occurs when the trains pass through the accident location area," he said.
