A husband and wife were killed in a four-vehicle crash near the Seremban R&R area, while two people died when their vehicle crashed into a bus stop in Mersing.
Updated: The driver of the trailer involved in the accident who fled the scene has surrendered to police.
A married couple was killed in an accident involving four vehicles, including a trailer lorry, at KM270 of the North-South Expressway on Oct 27.
Lau Lian Huat, 62, and his wife, Lim Ah Gim, 60, were killed on the spot due to severe head and body injuries. They were travelling in a Perodua Alza.
In the 5pm incident, authorities said the south-bound trailer lorry was said to have swerved into the opposite lane and crashed head-on into a Proton Preve and a Proton Waja, the New Straits Times reported.
The lorry then spun and slammed into the Alza before coming to a halt.
The Nilai Fire and Rescue Department took about half an hour to extricate the two victims who were trapped inside their vehicle.
Three other people from the other two vehicles were injured in the accident.
All the injured victims were rushed to the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital (TJH) in Seremban for treatment.
Police are looking for the lorry driver who fled the scene.
