BELURAN: A lorry laden with fertilisers skidded off the road and overturned while going downhill, killing the driver and seriously injuring two passengers.

The fatal crash happened at Bukit Ular, KM76.9 of Jalan Nangoh-Paitan at about 7.30am yesterday. District police chief, Supt Shivananthan Velautham said the lorry was transporting fertilizers to an oil palm plantation in Sugut when the crash occurred.

The lorry driver had apparently lost control of the vehicle near a sharp curve as it was going downhill at Bukit Ular and landed on its side by the roadside, Shivananthan said.

The lorry driver, he said, was pinned in the wreckage and died of serious injuries on the spot. His body was extricated by firefighters before police sent it to the hospital for post-mortem.

The driver, 59, was identified as Ahmad Nongkang @ Mado of Kampung Sentosa Jaya, Sandakan.

The passengers, Jeprii Azis, 35, fractured both legs while Rosli Ruma, also 35, sustained a broken thighbone. Shivanathan said both men, also residing in Sandakan, were rushed by passing motorists to the hospital for treatment.

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

Meanwhile, the Kinabatangan fire and rescue station after receiving a distress call at 7.53am, despatched six firefighters led by operation officer PBK II Rosemidian Haji Majid to the scene located about 151 kilometres away. The firefighters arrived at 9.52am and removed the driver from the wreckage using the Lukas Hydraulic Spreader. The operation ended at 10.35am.
