Thousands of Litres of Cooking Oil Spilled on Karak Highway

Thousands of liters of cooking oil was spilled on the Karak Highway yesterday.

The spill was caused by a tanker truck carrying a load of used cooking oil when it was involved in an accident at Kilometer 36.8 of the highway near Genting Sempah.

Gombak District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Noor Ariffin Mohamad Nasir, said the police received a report regarding the incident at about 9pm.

“The result of the investigation found that the incident happened at 2pm with a 50-year-old man driving the tanker from Kuantan to Port Klang, Selangor.

“It was raining heavily when he arrived at the location. He lost control of his truck and it hit the metal road barrier.”

He said the driver was uninjured and the case was investigated according to Rule 10 LN 166/59.

We would like to advise users of the highway, especially those riding motorcycles to be careful when in the area as the road surface may still be slippery. Anyway, the corners on the Karak Highway are certainly inviting, but there have been many unwanted incidents.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
