Prasarana Malaysia will be giving RM1,000 in compensation to all 213 victims in the LRT train collision that took place last night. In addition to that, the company will also be paying for the hospital fees of the victims, together with further compensation for those facing temporary loss of income.

According to Prasarana chairman Tajuddin Abdul Rahman, 64 passengers were still hospitalised, with six in critical condition and three requiring ventilators. Prasarana will be covering the medical costs of every victim until they are discharged.

Investigations into the harrowing crash are set to be completed in two weeks’ time. Tajuddin said, “This is a tragedy and accident beyond our control. We took all the necessary steps to make sure our services are safe. You can’t say our service isn’t safe. This is the first (incident of its kind). We are doing our best to maintain the safety levels.”

The collision took place between the automatic passenger train and an empty train with a driver in the underground portion of the Kelana Jaya LRT line . With almost all 213 passengers sustaining either heavy or light injuries, the accident is the worst to involve any of Malaysia’s modern transit rail lines.
