The miraculous survival of the driver has captivated the local community and raised awareness about road safety on this busy stretch of highway.

The Sequence of Events

Kuala Muda district police chief, Assistant Commissioner Wan Azharuddin Wan Ismail, provided a detailed account of the accident. The crash involved three vehicles: the trailer, the Perodua Axia, and a Perodua Alza. All three vehicles were traveling from Sungai Petani towards Alor Setar when the unexpected occurred.

The Trailer’s Sudden Swerve

The chaos began when the trailer suddenly veered from the left lane into the right lane. This abrupt movement led to the trailer grazing the Alza, causing the MPV to lose control and crash into a ditch. The impact was significant, but fortunately, the driver of the Alza, a 33-year-old, was unharmed.

The Axia’s Terrifying Impact

As the trailer skidded towards the right lane, it collided with the Perodua Axia. The Axia crashed into the right side of the trailer, resulting in severe damage to the vehicle. The driver of the Axia suffered cuts to his head and hand, but incredibly, he survived the devastating impact.

Immediate Response and Aftermath

The injured Axia driver was promptly transported to Hospital Sultan Abdul Halim for treatment. His survival, despite the severity of the crash, has been described as nothing short of miraculous. The other drivers involved in the accident, including the 56-year-old trailer driver, were unharmed.

The crash caused significant traffic disruption, leading to a one-hour crawl on the North-South Highway. Commuters experienced delays as authorities worked to clear the wreckage and restore normal traffic flow. The incident highlights the importance of safe driving practices, especially on busy highways.
