PETALING JAYA: The driver of the car involved in the fatal accident at Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP) is believed to have been speeding, said Puchong OCPD Asst Comm Megat Mohamad Aminuddin Megat Alias.

In the incident, 28-year-old Lim Ji Qin was killed while riding as a passenger in a car that collided with a lorry at around 6.40am on Wednesday. The driver of the car was injured while the lorry driver escaped unhurt.
