Highway car crash claims 1

A PERSON was killed and another injured in a car crash on Monday on a highway in the Pudong New Area, police confirmed yesterday.

The driver, surnamed Chang, sustained minor injuries and was recovering in Shuguang Hospital.

Chang is under police control because he was intoxicated at the time of the accident, an officer said.

The crash occurred about 11pm on the Jinke Road exit ramp of the Middle Ring Road, police said. Chang lost control of his car and crashed into a cement railing. The vehicle then caught fire.

Chang crawled out while the victim sitting beside him did not make it.

The passenger burned to death and police have yet to identify the individual, an officer said.

Witness Li Yanting said she saw the driver get out of the burning automobile. "He was on the ground and crawling away from the burning car," Li said. "I gave the man a bottle of water and left when the police arrived."
