Some 20 passengers of a stage bus escaped injuries but were left shaken after the vehicle they were travelling in developed a brake problem and slammed into cars at a traffic light junction in front of a petrol station in Batu Buruk.

The bus came to a halt after smashing into six cars.  A woman driver of one of the cars, in her 20s, was injured in the 3.15pm incident and was admitted to the Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital.

A passenger, Nur Shamini Mat Lazim, 21, said she was asleep at that time when she was woken up by a loud bang and the situation became chaotic.
