Speeding car causes fatal accident in seven-vehicle pile-up near Sg Buloh Hospital

KUALA LUMPUR, April 6: The crash involving seven vehicles, including an express bus, on the North-South Expressway (NSE) last night, was caused by a speeding car that went out of control along the highway, police said.

Sungai Buloh district police chief Supt Mohd Hafiz Muhammad Nor said that a four-wheel-drive (4WD) vehicle in the right lane of the southbound NSE near Sungai Buloh Hospital was unable to avoid the speeding car, leading to a collision, before being hit by three other vehicles.
