A man and his son watched in horror as his wife was hit and dragged some 55m by her car seconds after it was hijacked by two men in front of their house in Jalan Kapar here.
Finance executive Teoh Lay Moi, 52, (pic) succumbed to her injuries at 8.20pm on Tuesday even as frantic husband Koh Siew Ming rushed her to the hospital.
In the 7.15pm tragedy, Koh and his son dashed out from the house after hearing Teoh's screams for help.
They were shocked to see a man attempting to drive away Teoh's Toyota Altis parked outside the house after she had returned home from work.
The stranger was with another man and the two of them were suspected to have been waiting in ambush for Teoh, said North Klang OCPD Supt Mohamad Shukor Sulong.
It was believed the man had pushed Teoh away and forced his way into the car.
Teoh then screamed and attempted to block the car from being driven away.
The suspect tried to reverse the car but instead hit Teoh, dragging her for about 55m from her house.
When met at the mortuary, a distraught Koh said his wife parked the car outside their house as they wanted to go to the temple for prayers later that evening.
A neighbour, who did not want to be identified, said she thought there was a fight between the husband and wife when she heard Teoh's screams.
“I only realised it was a carjacking when I saw the car speeding in front of our house.
“Everything happened so fast,” she said.
Supt Mohamad Shukor said police are looking for two men and urged those with information to contact the nearest police station to facilitate police in their investigation.
