Default Four Indian 19-year olds in high-speed crash on Malaysian expressway

Four Indian teenagers from Klang, Malaysia, three 19-year old girls:
Reshween-Sonia Kaur, Kaushalvani Subramaniam and Easwari Mahalingam and Reshween-Sonia's boyfriend 19-year-old Jagdeep Singh were driving to Kuala Lumpur to meet friends after celebrating Reshween’s 19th birthday at a restaurant in Klang.

Jagdeep lost control of his Proton Iswara sedan at KM15.7 on the Federal Highway near the Subang exit, at 02:45 on Tue. 1st May 2007 morning. The car hit a divider and overturned in a shriek of ripping metal.



All three girls died on the spot of head injuries. Jagdeep was badly injured and hospitalized.

Condolences to the families affected. But - what caused the loss of control in the first place?

Why am I so indifferent? Another day. Another set of young lives snuffed out. Lets stop making such threads.

Tarry awhile to introspect a little, typeOnegative.

While tearing down the expressways at speeds that could launch us to the roof of a three-storeyed building, if we and some of our friends would remember this thread for a fleeting moment and slow down;
If while staying awake into the wee hours against the design of Mother Nature, speeding into the horizon at a time when decent people sleep, we remember this thread and exercise a modicum of restraint,
it would go a long way in making life safer and happier for ourselves, for those who care for us and for all else around.

If indifference is the smart option, whence the need to throw comments about threads, one is indifferent to?

Expressway is designed for hgh speed driving. Slowing down significantly below the avg. speeds of vehicles on an expressway can be just as dangerous as overspeeding. In this case we need to know what caused the driver to hit the divider. Did he fail to negotiate the exit from the Expressway, say, because he was tired/drunk/overspeeding and failed to see the exit in time? Or did he have a tyre burst that caused him to lose control? Could some safety features, such as, ABS, have saved the driver? Such detailed information can be helpful to prevent similar accidents in future. Merely expressing condolences makes the thread repetitive and not very useful to a forum like this.

I agree. If one is not interested in a thread, it is best to ignore it rather than atempt to force the Mods to close the thread.
