IPOH,. Traffic on the North-South Expressway that was already heavy from Chinese New Year travellers ground to a halt this morning after two cars overturned following a collision in the Menora Tunnel near here.
A state Fire and Rescue Department spokesman said the department received a distress call over the incident at 11.31am.
“When we arrived at the scene at KM261.4 northbound of the expressway, no victims were at site except for two vehicles: a Proton Saga and Proton Saga Aeroback,” he said in a WhatsApp message.
Responders remained at the scene to check for victims, but stopped the operations at 12.08pm, the spokesman added.
The incident caused a tailback at least 10km long.
A check on highway operator PLUS Malaysia’s Twitter account showed that the vehicles have been cleared and traffic back to normal.
