Q: what do you do when you are involved in a minor accident on the highway?
A : once the car is "safely" parked on the hard shoulder, get everyone out & stay clear of the car!!
this guy had a minor accident on the NSE, & as he was trying to retrieve something from the boot of the car, a van hit him.
he's very fortunate to be still alive, except for a disfigured face & badly broken leg.
total duration of surgery = 5 hours
future procedure = at least one more surgery, on the foot
time before he can walk unaided = 3 months +
estimated hospital bill = currently RM20K+
good thing he has insurance cover!
PS. i personally don't think the hard shoulder is a safe place to park. if i had a puncture on the highway, my safest option is to get the PLUS guys to change tyres for me.
