Lambo damaged in ‘wrong way’ crash

BUTTERWORTH: In yet another case of driving against traffic flow on the North-South Expressway (NSE), six cars, including a RM1.5mil Lamborghini, were damaged near Bertam.
According to police sources, a 31-year-old businessman heading to Sungai Petani made a U-turn after exiting the Sungai Muda rest area at the 116km of the NSE at about 1.45am yesterday.
Three oncoming cars collided with each other while trying to avoid the vehicle, which came to a halt after colliding with another car driven by a woman near the Sungai Dua toll plaza.
“Her car spun out of control and hit another car. The businessman suffered a broken arm while the others received outpatient treatment at a hospital,” the source said.
The businessman has been arrested and is being investigated for careless and inconsiderate driving under the Road Transport Act.
On March 14, a similar accident occurred about 10km away on the NSE. A 19-year-old part-time model was accused of driving on the opposite direction and crashing into a 26-year-old factory worker’s car. The latter died on the spot near Permatang Pauh.
Four other vehicles were also damaged in the accident.
She was charged with driving under the influence of drugs to the extent of being incapable of controlling her vehicle and causing death.
