A mobile video posted on social media shows a trailer that was being driven in the fast lane along the Elite Highway, ploughing through the guard rails after its driver lost control of the vehicle
The accident, which occurred at about 2.25pm on Friday, 13 April, was caught on mobile by a fellow road user who was driving behind the trailer.
As the trailer, while travelling on the extreme right lane of the Elite Highway, crashes into a centre divider, the road user behind the trailer panics and loses his focus.
However, he manages to regain control and continues to film the accident.
Reportedly, one of its tyres had burst. "The trailer driver tried to control the vehicle, but it careened off into the opposite lane," Sepang OCPD Assistant Commissioner Abdul Aziz Ali said.
"The traffic flow on both sides are slow at the moment and all drivers are advised to be extra careful when plying the highway," Assistant Commissioner Abdul told NST Online, adding that the weather was clear and the crash occurred on a linear stretch.
"All including the trailer driver escaped without any serious injuries."
According to the Assistant Commissioner, the trailer was heading north from Nilai, Negri Sembilan, and the accident also involved a car and a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
