IPOH: Five people were burnt to death when the car they were travelling in was involved in a collision with two trailers at Km246 of the North-South Expressway northbound near Kuala Kangsar early this morning.

A Perak fire and rescue department spokesman said they received a distress call just after 12.50am.

Personnel from the Kuala Kangsar fire and rescue station were immediately deployed to the scene, it said in a statement. They were assisted by teams from the Meru Raya, Kamunting and Ipoh stations.

The spokesman said the victims, who had yet to be identified, were travelling in a car when it was involved in a collision with a 20-tonne trailer laden with iron rods and a similar trailer carrying mosaic tiles.

Both the car and the first trailer were 90% burnt, he said, while the second trailer did not catch fire.

The three men in the trailers were unhurt.

The bodies of the victims were sent to Kuala Kangsar Hospital for a post mortem. - FMT
