Keningau: A lorry laden with oil palm fruit landed on its side after the drive lost control of the vehicle at Jalan Dalit here recently.
The driver, an Indonesian man, was headed to town from an oil palm factory when the mishap occurred at about 4pm.
The mishap caused the stretch, which is untarred, to be blocked, forcing other motorists to use other routes.
A motorist, Julef Basir said there were numerous accidents at Jalan Dalit-Kuala Tigasa especially when it rained.
“Sometimes we have to postpone our journey, parking in the jungle (flanking both sides of the stretch) just so we won’t become mishap victims.
“I’d rather use the road after the soil hardens,” he said.
