A man driving a Singapore registered BMW 740 apparently ploughed into a Johor motorcycle early on Wednesday, dragging the motorcycle along with it for a few hundred metres before both vehicles eventually caught fire.
The accident reportedly happened at about 4:25am at the Jalan Tebrau road in Johor, near a Caltex petrol station. A witness to the accident, a Johor taxi driver, said that the car driver and the motorcycle rider did not suffer any serious injuries.
However, the witness also said that he saw the BMW sped past him as he was driving along that road, and the car tyres had already caught fire by then. It had driven a further 300 metres down the road before it stopped, and by then, several people had managed to pull the BMW driver out. The same people then started beating up the BMW driver for about 5 minutes.
