It was learnt that the 60-year-old man was heading towards Inanam from Luyang while the lorry was headed towards Penampang from Inanam when the collision occurred at about 9am.
The impact caused the elderly man to lose control of his vehicle, which swerved and knocked into a water pipe before landing near a shallow ditch by the roadside, while the lorry landed on its side on the opposite side of the road.
The man sustained serious injuries to his right arm and chest, while the 30-year-old lorry driver escaped unscathed.
The elderly man is currently warded at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Two.
