HGV and two cars crash on busy south Devon road

Comments (0)[1]

An HGV and two cars crashed on a busy south Devon road on Saturday night. Two fire engines from Paignton[2] along with the heavy rescue vehicle from Exeter[3] were sent to Colley End Road in Paignton[4] after reports of the crash at 9.15pm. Firefighters initially feared people may be trapped inside some or all of the vehicles after the crash.

On arrival crews confirmed that all persons were out of the vehicles and got to work making the vehicles safe using small tools and a hose reel jet. Duty of care was left with the police. Traffic has substantially increased in Colley End Road in recent days thanks to the roadworks which have closed Kings Ash Road from the Marldon roundabout[5].

Those works are set to continue until the end of March. The steep hill is frequently lined with cars, making it difficult for large vehicles to negotiate in both directions.

Lorry attendant sent to gallows for drug trafficking

MUAR: A lorry attendant was sentenced to death by the High Court here today after he was found guilty of drug trafficking at Taman Puteri, Kluang near here last year. Judicial commissioner Muhammad Jamil Hussin meted down the sentence on R. Karuppu Samy, 36, after the defence failed to raise any reasonable doubts on the prosecution’s case.

Muhammad Jamil, in his ruling, said the accused’s statement that he was not aware of the existence of a black box containing the drugs was clearly a denial. The accused was charged with trafficking in cannabis weighing 657 grams in a house at No 46, Jalan Sutera 2/6, Taman Puteri, Kluang near here at 12.10am on March 20 last year. He was charged under Section 39B(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act which carries a death sentence upon conviction.

A total of 12 prosecution witnesses and two defence witnesses testified during the trial.

The prosecution was conducted by deputy public prosecutor Rasyidah Murni Adzmi while the accused was represented by counsel Salmi Hamdan Sabran. — Bernama
