In an incident that occurred yesterday afternoon, a 25-year-old woman escaped unhurt after a portion of a tower crane fell onto her car

The tower crane fell off a trailer lorry at Jalan SS2/24, Petaling Jaya, around 5.45pm as the 25-year-old woman was driving home in her Perodua Myvi, New Straits Times reported.

In the incident, while the car was badly damaged, the victim did not sustain any physical injury, according to Petaling Jaya Police chief Assistant Commissioner (ACP) Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal.

"When she was driving at the location, suddenly a part of tower crane fell off the trailer and hit her car. Following the impact, the roof, windscreen, and several other parts of the car were damaged but the victim escaped with no injuries," he said in a statement earlier today, 20 September.

"Members of the public rushed to the location to provide first aid to the victim."

The accident occurred after a part of the tower crane knocked into two telephone poles, causing them to collapse onto the Jalan SS2/24

The tower crane was being transported, Nik Ezanee said.

While the woman has lodged a police report, the driver of the trailer has yet to do so.

"The investigation paper was opened under Rules 19 of the Road Traffic Rules 166/59 as the cargo carried on the trailer has fallen and caused an accident," he added.
