PETALING JAYA: A car carrying a couple and their two children burst into flames and slid backwards down the road to Genting Highlands before hitting and stopping in front of an SUV yesterday afternoon.

The driver of the vehicle stopped the car when he noticed the fire and shouted to his wife and children to get out, according to a China Press report.

A video of the incident showed the car rolling about 50m down the road as other vehicles and pedestrians hurried out of its way before it collided with an SUV that could not evade it.

Firemen went to the scene and put out the flames about an hour later.

The department’s forensics unit is investigating the cause of the fire.
