This is the dramatic moment a car was washed away after the driver skidded off the road and plunged into a storm drain during heavy rain. Khodijah Mohd Ismail, 56 lost control of the silver Toyota Vios during a monsoon season downpour in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, on Sunday November 4 at 6:30pm. The motorist managed to clamber out of the vehicle but when rain continued, a torrent of water surged through the man-man concrete drains. Khodijah watched in disbelief as he vehicle was carried away by the flood water, eventually reaching the local river. Selangor Deputy Chief of Traffic Enforcement and Investigation Department (JSPT) Deputy Superintendent Sahimi Husin said: "Based on the initial information obtained, a Toyota Vios car was believed to have skidded before plunging into the drain.''
