A dashcam has captured the moment a driver and his passenger spotted a "ghost" sitting in the middle of the road in an area famous for its spooky sightings.

As the car rounds a bend the figure can be seen up ahead in the centre of the road in a cross-legged or lotus position and the both men in the car start to sound a little panicky.

The driver immediately stops the vehicle and says: "Okay, that's a bit scary."

Then his passenger, who also sounds uneasy, says "Yeah," and adds: "That is very scary."

Without hesitating the driver then puts the car into reverse to get away from what they think is a ghost.

The eerie figure appeared in the middle of the road as the driver went round a bend

The film was shot at night on a quiet road in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur between the areas of Taman Tasik Perdana and Bukit Tunku.

A further note of panic creeps in to the driver's voice as he says: "That's uh...uh...uh."

His passenger tries to calm him down, saying: "It's all right," as the clip ends.

After the clip was posted online, many other people said they had had similar experiences in the area.

Stories of the figure in the road go back 10 years, it is said locally.

The road looked normal moments before the ghostly figure appeared from nowhere

But some locals said the figure in the road would have forced the car to stop if it had carried on in that direction and it was in fact someone planning to rob the car's occupants.

They said if the car had slowed down, accomplices would have jumped out from the shadows and mugged them.

The names of the terrified driver and his passenger were not reported, but they are thought to have continued their journey in a different direction without incident.
