She was driving from KL International Airport when another car travelling in the same direction rammed into the back of her vehicle.

The impact caused the woman’s car to overturn along Maju Expressway, near the Bukit Jalil exit. 

Car and driver then crashed into the cement road divider. The car burst into flames - with the woman still inside.

The horrific accident happened on Sunday (March 29) at about 7am, Malaysian newspaper The Star reported.

Fire and Rescue Department officers arrived at 7.11am to extinguish the flames and pull her and the other driver out of their cars.
