An accident happened at Taman Bukit Cheras, last night (20th September), involving a car and a crane which caused people to quickly point fingers at SUKE as it took place near their construction site.
According to FMT, the company behind the highway, Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings Sdn Bhd (Prolintas) has denied any link between SUKE over last night’s incident.
Initially, it was speculated the car’s back roof was crushed due to a falling debris, similar to another accident near the vicinity. However, police have reported that the car was pounded from behind and the crane damaged the car’s roof.
Nonetheless, the roof damage caused by the crane’s hook managed to trap the driver inside. Thankfully, the man in his 50s was successfully rescued by the Fire and Rescue department and sustained no injuries.
It was claimed that the police had verified the accident as a hit-and-run believed to be caused by a private crane. Following the speculation, Prolintas took it to SUKE’s Twitter account, asking netizens to stop linking the incident with SUKE and spread false rumours.
Construction works for SUKE has been stopped temporarily after a concrete slab fell from the site, almost killing a driver passing by, on Saturday. That same day, a portion of a tower crane fell off a trailer and damaged another woman’s MyVi in Petaling Jaya.
It’s scary how heavy items are just falling out of the sky and damaging vehicles on the road.
