2 injured in 'egg-cident' on North-South Expressway


KEPALA BATAS (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Thousands of eggs cracked and were splattered on the highway after a lorry carrying the fragile cargo was rear-ended by a car.

The incident occurred on the North-South Expressway near Kuala Muda at Kepala Batas.

North Seberang Prai OCPD Assistant Commissioner Noorzainy Mohd Noor said the 26-year-old car driver was believed to have dozed off before hitting the lorry at about 9am on Monday (April 2).

"The vehicles were heading north when the incident happened. Both drivers were sent to the Sultan Abdul Halim Hospital in Sungai Petani for treatment," he said.

An 86-second video of the incident has gone viral on social media.

Recorded by another driver, the video clip showed the car switching lanes and slowing down then speeding up again before it slammed into the lorry.

After the impact, the car careened out of control before it came to a stop after hitting the highway divider.
