Six passengers involved in the collision between two trains on the LRT Kelana Jaya line last night are in critical condition - three of them on ventilators.

This according to a tweet by Federal Territories Minister Annuar Musa this morning, reported Malay Mail.

According to the minister, a total of 64 injured passengers were rushed to the Emergency Department of Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) - of which six were critically injured, 15 semi-critical, and the remaining 43, non-critical.

Meanwhile, Prasarana Malaysia Bhd chairman Tajuddin Abdul Rahman has said that all 213 victims involved in the crash last night will be given RM1,000 in compensation each.

He added that Prasarana will also foot the medical bill of every hospitalised victim, until they are discharged.

Tajuddin further assured a thorough investigation will be carried out into the incident.

The collision happened at 8.45pm yesterday in a tunnel between the KLCC and Kampung Baru LRT stations. The head-on collision involved a train carrying 213 passengers and another train, which was said to have been test-driven following a fault, and only carried a driver.

Video clips showing shattered glass and bloodied passengers inside the carriage started circulating on social media, soon after the crash.
