Traffic on Penang Bridge reduced to crawl after accident
BUTTERWORTH: Morning traffic on the Penang Bridge was reduced to a crawl following an accident between a car and a lorry at Km1 of the mainland bound stretch.
The accident caused a massive crawl from the scene stretching to Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway in Jelutong as the left lane and the emergency lane of the three-lane bridge had to be closed for traffic.
It also caused a massive jam on the island-bound stretch as motorists slowed down their vehicle to take a peek at the accident site across the bridge during the morning hour-rush.
In the 6am accident, the driver of the car, who was believed to be speeding, crashed into the rear of a lorry about a kilometre away from the Penang Bridge's toll plaza in Prai and died on the spot.
Works to clear the scene had been completed at about 8.30am and traffic from the bridge mid-span towards the mainland began easing at 10am.
