Three killed as express bus crashes into divider at Bukit Taga

Three passengers were killed when an express bus went out of control and hit the road divider near the Bukit Tagar Toll Plaza in Hulu Selangor, along the North-South Expressway, early Monday.

During the 3.10am accident, Mohd Zamri Rani, 42, from Kedah, Mohd Ainul Fauzi Mohd Aman, 25, from Simpang Renggam, Johor Baru and a yet to be identified woman, died at the scene.

Hulu Selangor police chief Supt Norel Azmi said the driver of the bus was believed to have lost control and hit the road divider.

"The express bus from Kuala Lumpur and heading north was believed to be speeding when the driver lost control. The impact saw the road divider cut through the bus frame," he said.

The bodies of the three victims were later sent to the Kuala Kubu Baru Hospital while the driver who was injured, was sent to the Sungai Buloh Hospital, for treatment.

Norel added that 13 other passengers in the bus were not injured.
