Two Singaporeans killed in Kuala Lumpur crash
Two Singaporeans were killed after they lost control of their Porsche 911 Turbo, which crashed into the road divider of the KL-Seremban Expressway early this morning (Nov 9).
Traffic police identified the pair as race car driver Kwek Kon Chun, 35, and photographer Franco Toh, 43.
Kwek was a co-owner of the Neverland Group, which runs a stable of clubs in Singapore.
They were travelling along KM3.8 of the highway at about 2.30am Sunday when Kwek lost control of the vehicle.
“The car spun out of control and crashed into the metal road divider,” said Kuala Lumpur Staff Officer for Traffic Investigation and Regulation Deputy Supt Markandan Subramaniam.
He said that a 20m steel rail from the divider impaled into the car through the driver’s side, pinning Kwek and Toh inside.
KL Fire and Rescue Department operations chief Azizan Ismail said five officers had to cut through the twisted wreck to extract the bodies.
Both men were pronounced dead at the scene at about 3.30am.
DSP Markandan said the two had come from an event in Sepang and were driving towards the city centre.
Their bodies have been brought to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital for a post-mortem.
