Why does every driver in Malaysia that had ever driven against the traffic on the highway is either wanted criminals or high on drugs?
On Sunday (Oct 7), Malaysians were horrified by yet another viral video which saw a white truck speeding against the traffic and collided into another truck at the middle lane. According to The Star, the incident happened at KM 432 of the North-South Expressway (PLUS) yesterday at 9.15am.
The 37-year-old suspect rammed into a 48-year-old truck driver and fortunately, both drivers didn’t suffer any injury.
Hulu Selangor Police Chief Supt Lim Bak Phai revealed that the suspect was a medicine supplier and he drove against the traffic for a stretch of 3-kilometre after the Sungai Buaya toll plaza.
In an over one-minute clip, we could see that the victim jammed the brakes once he saw the white truck charging at him. The wheels were screeching, creating a cloud of smoke, and the collision made a huge thunderous sound. The trucks rammed into each other on their left side. Luckily, both of them survived the crash without any injury.
The initial investigation unraveled that the suspect was a wanted man with 36 arrest warrants issued against him and he was ordered to appear in courts for 15 cases. He didn’t have a licence and had a total of 64 unpaid summonses.

It must be a miracle at work to see that the highspeed coalition didn’t result in any injury!
