A private jet that was attempting to land collided with a car and a motorbike on a highway, killing at least 10 people.

According to Malaysia’s civil aviation authorities, the Beechcraft plane carried six passengers and two crew members.

The jet had been flying west of Kuala Lumpur’s capital, from Langkawi to Selangor.

The aircraft had lost touch with the air traffic control tower, according to the Selangor police commander.

Hussein Omar Khan stated that there was no emergency call and that the plane had been given permission to land.

The plane’s black box, which contains the flight data, is being sought after by investigators.

“For now we cannot say what was the cause of the crash since investigations are underway,” Transport Minister Anthony Loke said.
“Forensic officials are identifying the remains of all the victims,” he added.

Mohamad Syahmie Mohamad Hashim, a former member of the Malaysian Air Force, told AFP that he saw the plane flying erratically.

“Not long after that I heard a loud boom,” he said. “I sped towards the location and saw the remains of an aircraft. I couldn’t do anything.”
