Pagoh bus crash: Survivor R. Nagadevan recalls events of the horrific accident

NST

MUAR: "Almost everyone on board the bus was sound asleep, and they were not ready to brace for impact," recalls one of the survivors of the Pagoh bus crash, R. Nagadevan, 26.
Nagadevan suffered fractured ribs and a fractured spine, and severe cuts on both of his legs and on his mouth when he was thrown to the front of the bus upon impact.
"I was sleeping at the time, and I was awoken when the bus started to wobble before flying down the slope and hitting the ground hard," he said.
Nagadevan recalled that the impact of the crash caused passengers in the front rows to be violently thrown to the front and into each other.
"My fall was broken when I fell on top of someone after the impact," he said.
Nagadevan, who hails from Selangor, said his brother and sister came to visit him at the Sultanah Fatimah hospital here.
He has been advised by doctors to remain in the hospital to recuperate.
Nagadevan said the bus was supposed to arrive to pick him and the other passengers up in Johor Baru at 1.30am, but it only arrived at 2am.
"All of us were exasperated at the time, but (we remembered that) it was the holidays, (so) we thought it was the usual delay.
“We never knew it would end in tragedy," he said.
