Kota Kinabalu: A man escaped unscathed when the Toyota four-wheel-drive he was driving skidded and keeled over near Taman Jaya Diri in Telipok when he tried to avoid hitting a lorry on Saturday.

It was learnt that the man, in his 50s, was heading towards the Sepanggar direction when an overtaking lorry suddenly cut into his lane in the 3.30pm incident.
