SEREMBAN: A durian-laden lorry heading to Kuala Lumpur from Segamat, Johor overturned on the North-South Expressway (PLUS), dumping a tonne of the King of Fruits on the highway.

Nilai district police chief Mohd Fazley Ab Rahman said the incident took place at the KM279.9 mark of the expressway (northbound), near Nilai, about 7km from the Seremban rest and service area at 1.55pm.

“The incident is believed to have occurred when the 25-year-old driver lost control of the vehicle after its rear left tyre burst.

“The lorry then skidded before it overturned on the left side of the expressway, causing 1,000kg of durians to be scattered all over the road,” he said in a statement, here, today, adding that the lorry driver and his 52-year-old attendant sustained minor injuries.

Fazley said the case was being investigated under Rule 10 LN 166/59. - FMT
