Woman Burnt To Death In Three-vehicle Accident
KUALA LUMPUR, June 3 (Bernama) — A woman was burnt to death in her Myvi car in an early morning accident in Jalan Cheras after another vehicle from the opposite side of the road skidded and hit her car which was then rammed by a three-tonne lorry carrying vegetables.
The accident happened near the Cheras velodrome at 3.30am and police are trying to identify the dead woman from the car registration number.
“From the physical appearance, this accident involves a woman driver,” Kuala Lumpur traffic police investigation officer DSP Abdullah Roning told Bernama.
Abdullah said a Toyota Vios believed to have been driven fast by a 33-year-old man skidded and veered onto the opposite side of the road.
It hit the Myvi car and crashed onto a lamp post, badly injuring both the driver and his female companion.
“The first accident made the Myvi spin a few times and it was hit by a three-tonne vegetable lorry from behind and burst into flames,” he said.
The woman driver, however, was unable to escape and was trapped in her seat and burnt to death.
The lorry driver and his attendant were unhurt.
The injured couple were sent to the nearby Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia medical centre. The remains of the woman were also sent there.
Updates : The authorities have verified that there was an accident involving three cars. Will update when I know more later
It was a freak accident involving a lorry, a Vios and a Myvi. According to witness, Akina Teo in his Facebook note, the Myvi was totally sardined and a girl was trapped inside. He saw a spark of fire at the engine bay so he drove to the nearest BHP to get a fire extinguisher from the attendants who were behind the locked kiosk/counter. They refused to lend him the fire extinguisher and even threatened to report the guy.
He returned back to the scene and the car was totally burnt and the poor girl was burnt alive inside. Read his full account in the spoiler:
FUCK BHP!!!!! FUCK BHP!!! why? let me tell you!!
this morning approx 3.20am, at Cheras Tmn Pertama roundabout,
saw a freak accident, involving a Vios, Myvi and a Lorry.
im one the first badge who arrive, mean it just happen maybe seconds ago.
Vios believe to be turtle and badly damaged. When im passing by the vios, rear passenger started to pull out the front driver and front passenger.
then when i pass the Myvi, the car was totally sardine. Heard one girl was yelling cos piined inside. I stop my car then run towards the myvi to offer a hand while calling 999 emergency line to request for ambulance and bomba.
then saw fire spark at the engine bay of myvi. while still on the phone with emergency line to provide more details, i run back to my car and drive to BHP station which is just less than 500m away from the scene.
then i request for the fire extingusher from the attendant which is kept inside. There was 4 extingusher on the ground. But the attendant refuse to pass to me.
the BHP attendant claimed dat the door cant be open.
then i shout at him, i need it! i want it! someone is pinned inside the car and its started to burn!
then the BHP attendant keep repeating he kenot borrow and open the door.
then i was like WTF! if ur kiosk is burning can u come out? then he replied yes.
then he still say he kenot open the door. Then he say his boss wont allowed to borrow. WTF!!!
then i started to amuk kicking the kiosk and punching the glass of the kiosk.
i even throw my IC to him say that if im dun return u report police.
i saw i borrow.. if i use it i will pay for it. then he keep on just smile at me.
then he ask another partner to come out. Then i start shouting and yelling at them with bad words saying dat if the girl dies you two are the murderer.
then the 2nd BHP attendant shout back at me.
i demand for their names, i told them i would complain bout them,
then the 2nd attendant copy down my number plate and said that all my acts been recorded on CCTV and he gonna report to police tumoro. I challenged him.
then i drove off back to the scene.. the car was totally burning and the poor girl was burn alive inside.
then i spoke to the Bomba and PDRM how many casualties was inside. they told me one girl.
Then i spoke to PDRM about the incident happen in BHP.. then the policemen also scold with anger WTF with them.. if i could get the fire extingushier.. the girl might be saved.
then the Policemen ask me to go police station to report a cover about the BHP, and he assured me that the stupid BHP wont get to report on me.
Personally i would like to ask, how much does 4 fire extingusher cost? isit more expensive than a life?
would like to ask the BHP petrol station’s boss! u cant afford to lose 4 fire extingusher then u better closed down your station!!!! Fuck you boss!!!!
and this is to BHP MALAYSIA!! seens your procedure to keep all safety gadget inside the kiosk… if anything happen during refueling… is your attendant gonna open the door to help? seens he claimed that the door cant be open after hours??
FUCK YOU BHP!!! FUCK YOU!!!
i personally from now on will boycott BHP… i dont know how about you all!!!
gonna give BHP HQ a call tumoro… see what the fuck will they say about this kind of safety measurement they have!!!!!
for the two BHP attendant!!! you are the murderer!!!!!
I saw another blog post that supposedly had the photos of accident and it is terrible. Credits to ondscene (though I dont really like the heavily religious theme of the post) and the photos are in the spoiler.
mm…I would like to see how the BHP government relations manager Abdul Kaiyum will reply if we ask him the question “If your loves ones like wife or daughter was burnt alive like that girl..would you say the same thing ? ? “
wilson: if you work at a petrol station and was assaulted by robbers before, would you open the doors again to somenone suspicious?
Wilson, ur damn stupid la… do u know every attendant life is dangerous and this is the reason they do not open door for security…. u think ur father station meh??? why Jimmy dont go for other station there Shell, Mobil… damn it… damn stupid la..
orang lain yg langgar org lain yg kena org lain yg salah..pmlik vios sengeh je sbb tak kene lanyak..walhal dia punca mslah..da tau xcident tak dijangka drivela carefully..jgn lu ingat jln mak nenek lu punya..klu rmh lu org yg didatangi teo at 3 amnak mnta Tlg dgn gaye paniknye tu lu org akan buka pintu ka..sendiri mau igtla..sapa yg blh dipercayai skrg ni??
bloody hell, any refuelling station should have fire retardant and extinguishers AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES as fire is a constant potential hazard.
It’s for the same reason that airliners carries cabin crews as safety officers in flights. What? You’re going to not have cabin crews in flight just because dudes are staring at them?
BHP is stupid. That’s plain
What if I set the station on fire at that time, would they come out with the Fire extinguishers ??
Would they let their station burn, coz they are worried of being robbed ? Every station MUST have the Fire extinguishers next to each pump.
Its a fire hazard place no excuses ! They have CCTV recordings, if anyone steals it or abuse it, they can always report to the police !
Govt should make a clear ruling and BHP need to apologies and take actions for the future !
They say Teo was not “acting calmly” STUPID BAFOONS ! If you see someone who nears death and trying to help, how would you react ? Calm ?
I agree with budlee, Boey, and pak belalang.
I love how you other guys are focusing on the incident at BHP only when clearly it was the other driver’s fault. Do remember also that the fire extinguisher MIGHT have been able to save her.
“What if I set the station on fire at that time, would they come out with the Fire extinguishers ??”
– Of course they would. But what has that gotta do with the problem?
“Its a fire hazard place no excuses ! They have CCTV recordings, if anyone steals it or abuse it, they can always report to the police !”
– Yes, I agree it’s a fire hazard to NOT place the fire extinguishers at an accessible area but it’s not about being able to make a report to the police if someone steals them. It’s the fact that most Malaysian employers are abusive towards their employees. Employees like kiosk attendants are afraid of their employers.
This is a result of reckless driving, end of story.
My condolences go out to Florina’s family and friends. Sorry for their loss.
FUCK IT larr….its too late to said anything at this point as wat has happened already happened and we cant change the pass…. BHP & the reckless driver needs to be responsible regarding of this matter and a single apologize will not be enough to solve the problem and my deepest condolences to Florida’s family & friends. Am so sorry to hear this story and sorry for their loss.
