Following the collision, Atmaca's car caught on fire, and he and his wife Gürdane Atmaca burned to death.
The 73-year-old man was reportedly in a hurry to attend the funeral of his sibling in Istanbul.
A family of three, who were in the other car involved in the accident, were taken to a hospital with injuries.
