KULAIJAYA: Three people, including a Cambodian tourist, sustained major injuries and 22 others suffered minor cuts when the express bus they were travelling in went out of control and plunged into a drain.

The incident occurred around 4.40am at KM19 along the Ayer Hitam-Johor Baru stretch here Monday.

A passenger said the accident occured a few minutes after the bus had passed the toll station in Kulai, when the vehicle swerved violently, hit a divider and plunged into the drain.

Several passengers, who claimed the bus was speeding, were thrown out of the vehicle.
