Local actor Roy Azman and his family escaped unharmed after the car they were travelling in burst into flames on Sunday (Nov 3).

On Monday, Roy took to social media to post a video of his car engulfed in flames on a highway and three photos showing the aftermath of the fire.

“Alhamdulillah, my wife, youngest child and I managed to escape the burning car in time,” the 53-year-old wrote on Instagram.

Recounting the harrowing experience in a separate video, Roy revealed that he and his family were returning home from Puncak Alam (Selangor) around 11pm when the incident occurred.

“I sent the car for an overhaul in Ampang and collected it yesterday afternoon after it was completed.

“On the way back home after having dinner with some friends, several cars started honking to warn us that our car was on fire,” he said.

Roy added that he couldn’t see the fire as it was underneath his car.

But upon realising what was happening, the actor quickly attempted to hit the brakes, only to discover that it wasn’t functioning.

Thankfully, the handbrake was still working, and he managed to stop the car in time.

“Luckily, the car didn’t crash into the road divider,” he said, adding that the vehicle was already ablaze by the time it had come to a halt.

Although the whole ordeal was “chaotic”, Roy was grateful that he and his family managed to save themselves and escape unharmed.

“Allah saved us from an unwanted situation,” he said.

Roy thanked well-wishers for their concern and prayers. He also extended his gratitude to friends who accompanied him to file the police report that night.

Although his car is damaged beyond repair, Roy said that the most important thing was his family's safety.
