KUALA LUMPUR - Three people were injured when a bus crashed into a shoplot in Jalan Pudu here.

The incident took place at 7pm yesterday following a downpour, which left the road slippery.

The RapidKL city bus was moving along Jalan Pudu when the driver lost control of the vehicle. "The bus then skidded and crashed into the shop," a witness said.

All three passengers suffered light injuries.

City Fire and Rescue Department deputy director Azizan Ismail said firefighters arrived at the scene to help the three - a man in his 50s and two women, in their 40s - out of the bus and got them medical attention.

The extent of the damage has not been determined, Azizan said, while urging drivers to be cautious during bad weather.
