Woman’s lucky escape after large piece of concrete falls on her car

KUALA LUMPUR: A woman was fortunate to escape with only an injured arm, after a piece of concrete fell onto her car along the MRR2 near Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS).

The woman was driving along MRR2 around 4.30pm on Saturday (Sept 19), when the one square metre-sized piece of concrete fell onto her car.

Kuala Lumpur Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) chief Asst Comm Zulkefly Yahya said the concrete was part of the construction of the Sungai Besi-Ulu Kelang Elevated Expressway (SUKE).

“The victim suffered an injured arm, and was assisted by other motorists at the site.

“She has been rushed to the Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM) for treatment,” he said when contacted on Saturday.

There were no other victims of vehicles involved, he added.

“Efforts to remove the car and rubble, as well as opening up the lane again took about two hours.

“We are investigating the matter further,” ACP Zulkefly said.
