“According to the driver of the Hilux, after the crash occurred, the man in the Kia came out of his car and climbed up the road divider before jumping off the Kerinchi link highway, towards Ara Damansara,” Brickfields police chief Zairulnizam Mohd Zainuddin said in a statement.

Zairulnizam said the case has been classified as sudden death.

He added that the victim’s body was also brought to Hospital Kuala Lumpur for autopsy. Results showed that he sustained serious injuries to the head. Several packets of drugs were also found tied to both sides of his legs.
