After yet another evening of torrential rain throughout the country, videos of serious accidents that took place along the North-South Highway have started surfacing on the internet.
One video, in particular, shows the dangers of low visibility and heavy traffic during heavy rain. A was seen stopping just in time before hitting a spun Pajero Sport along the rightmost lane of the North-South Highway.
However, before the Alza could change lanes to continue on its way, a heavy trailer in the middle lane lost control, presumably trying to avoid the Alza, and crashed into the Alza instead.
The accident reportedly happened at KM 245.8 of the North-South Highway heading north from Pedas Linggi at around 2 pm yesterday.
In a separate incident also in Pedas Linggi, a was seen losing control while trying to change lanes near the rest stop. The Axia could be seen spinning across the span of three lanes before ending up in a ditch on the side of the highway.
These videos have raised concerns amongst netizens about the dangers of stopping to lend a helping hand to cars that were involved in accidents along highways during the heavy rain.
