JOHOR BARU: A man was killed after the car he was driving rammed into the metal divider along Jalan Bakar Batu to Permas Jaya this morning.

Johor Baru Selatan (JBS) district police chief ACP Shahurinain Jais said the driver, Too Kim Seng, 56, was heading to Permas Jaya around 6.50am when the accident happened.

"The driver died on the spot," he added.
