At about 9am yesterday, a lorry driver who found his path blocked by several cars at a market in Taman Berjaya here, rammed his way through, damaging 18 vehicles during the process.
According to The Star, most of the cars damaged belonged to market-goers, who had parked along Lorong Rajawali 2, where the lorry was also believed to have been parked.
Fortunately, no one was hurt in the incident.
An eyewitness said the lorry driver tried to move his vehicle yesterday morning but the path was blocked by the cars.
“Angered because he could not move his lorry, the driver hit a car on his way out. We tried to stop him but he ignored us and continued to ram the lorry into the other cars parked there.
“Before we knew it, he was already out on the open road,” the eyewitness said.
The lorry was later discovered at a banana plantation, however, the driver was not found.
South Seberang Perai OCPD Supt Wan Hassan Wan Ahmad, said that out of 18 damaged cars, seven car owners have lodged police reports at the district’s traffic police division.
The case is currently being investigated under Section 43 or Section 44 of the Road Transport Act 1987.
