10 dead, 2 injured in northern Malaysia bus crash
Kuala Lumpur: A bus skidded off a highway and crashed into a barrier in northern Malaysia early Saturday, killing 10 people and injuring two others.
The vehicle spun out of control and slammed into the metal barrier that tore through the lower tier of the double-decker bus, a Perak state police officer said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the press.
All the victims were Malaysians and seated on the lower deck. Thirty-eight others on the bus were not injured.
The cause of the accident was not immediately known. The bus was heading from central Selangor state to the northernmost state of Perlis, which borders Thailand.
Malaysia has a high-quality highway system with a speed limit of 70 miles (110 kilometers) per hour, but speeding is common and many drivers often do not follow safety procedures.
