KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 17 – Rapid Bus Sdn Bhd has set up a special team to handle the claims of victims following the accident involving RapidKL bus in AU2 Keramat, last night.
Its Chief Executive Officer Mohd Azam Omar said that affected vehicle owners can submit their claims together with relevant documents via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
He confirmed that the bus involved in the incident was in good condition. Based on a police report lodged at the 8pm incident, it started when the bus was involved in a road accident in Jalan Enggang AU2, Taman Keramat.
It was reported that the driver continued driving the bus while being pursued by a group of motorcyclists. The bus had rammed into several vehicles along its route before reaching the Jalan Ampang -MRR2 Expressway exit where there was a gridlock.
The bus was reportedly “stuck” in traffic and it was then that the bus driver was beaten up by several civilians. Mohd Azam said the company regretted the incident and had given its full cooperation to the police and relevant authorities for the matter to be investigated.
“We hope the public will not make any speculation pending the official inquiry by the police,” he said. The bus captain (driver) is now receiving treatment at the hospital. No one was reported to have been injured during the incident. — Bernama
