KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) - A Malaysian man seriously injured in a car accident crawled through jungle for three days before happening upon an isolated village, authorities said Friday.

The man, identified as Nicholas Andrew, showed up at the village on Wednesday, after the car he was driving sped off a highway in central Malaysia into a ravine early Sunday morning, said police chief Som Sak Din Keliaw said

Andrew broke his arm and leg and a passenger was killed, he said.

Andrew then crawled close to a river until he reached the village.

Andrew told local media from his hospital bed the accident happened after he had been delivering wedding invitations.

He said after regaining consciousness following the smash that he called for his friend, got no response and then decided to "crawl for help."
