A wild tiger was hit and killed by a car while crossing an expressway in Malaysia in the wee hours of Thursday (May 16) morning.

The incident happened at the Kuala Lumpur-Karak Expressway near Lentang, reported The Star.

Dashcam footage from the vehicle captured the shocking moment the animal appeared out of nowhere from the right side of the car, before it was struck.

Videos and photos published by Malaysian news sites of the aftermath showed the carcass of the large felid, reported to be around 130kg, lying on the asphalt following the collision.

A silver-coloured car which hit it appeared to have sustained significant damage to its front bumper and hood.
