PETALING JAYA: The BMW driver, who was burnt to death when the vehicle caught fire following an accident near Subang Airport, has been identified as a 29-year-old manager.

The victim was identified after the Petaling Jaya Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department traced his car's chassis number to a company named Farmcochem Sdn Bhd, which is based in Silibin, Ipoh.

It is believed the victim was the company’s manager.

Earlier, Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din said initial investigations revealed that the driver had lost control of the vehicle, causing the car to swerve to the side of Jalan PJU 1A/1, before hitting a tree at about 4.45am on Sunday (Feb 17).

“The impact of the crash caused the car to burst into flames.

“It took firemen 15 minutes to put the flames out,” he said when contacted.
