The BMW driver is suspected to have been driving drunk at the time.
The BMW crashed into the motorcycle along the Tebrau highway and dragged the biked for about 300 metres.
Taxi driver Mr Xie, who witnessed the incident, said the BMW sped past him with its wheels on fire before it came to a stop.
Then, the car burst into flames.
About 5 persons stopped to offer their help to the BMW driver.
By “help”, we mean hantam – they dragged the BMW driver out of his car and started whacking him.
Said Mr Xie:
“They punched and kicked him. One person was even hitting him with a wooden rod. The situation turned quite chaotic.”
Mr Xie said he got out of his taxi and went to stop the crowd from attacking the BMW driver.
Fortunately for the motorcyclist, it seems that he fell off his motorcycle before it got dragged and suffered only minor injuries.
He could have been among the crowd who were beating up the BMW driver.
All the while during the beating, the BMW driver could be heard pleading with the crowd, saying ‘I’m sorry, please don’t hit me.”
Mr Xie said he appeared drunk and could hardly speak properly.
Soon, firefighters arrived and extinguished the blaze.
The case is being investigated.
