Human factor among various aspects in LRT accident probe: Wee
PUTRAJAYA: Human factor is just one facet of the investigation into the accident involving two LRT Kelana Jaya trains on Monday, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong (pic).

Wee said the investigation would also take into consideration an entire range of technical and operational components in connection with the tragic collision.

He said this in a statement, Wednesday, to address perceptions that “human error” has been conclusively determined as a cause of the accident

On Monday night, two Kelana Jaya Line LRT trains - one carrying passengers and the other being tested - collided in the tunnel area between the Kampung Baru and KLCC stations, injuring 213 passengers onboard.

He said the nine-person ministerial-level investigative committee, headed by Transport Ministry secretary-general Datuk Isham Ishak and tasked to subject matter experts, had begun to examine various aspects of the incident, including the human factor.
