Highway horror: Man dies after car hits cow on North-South Expressway

KUALA LUMPUR: A 30-year-old man tragically lost his life in the early hours of today after his car collided with a cow on the North-South Expressway (PLUS), heading from the Jalan Duta toll plaza towards Sungai Buloh.

Kuala Lumpur Traffic Enforcement and Investigation Department chief, Assistant Commissioner Sarifudin Mohd Salleh, said that the accident occurred at 4.55am. 

Preliminary investigations revealed that the victim was driving in the rightmost lane when his vehicle struck a cow in the same lane. 

The impact caused the car to veer off course and hit a road divider.

"The self-employed driver suffered severe injuries and died at the scene," said Sarifudin. 

The case is being investigated under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.
