Pedestrian shelter collapses on car in Singapore
SINGAPORE, June 17 — At least one car was severely damaged after a pedestrian shelter collapsed across the car park at Bukit Batok West Ave 6, Block 116 this morning.
There were no injuries reported, said the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) in a statement.
The SCDF said it had been alerted to the incident at 9.37am and dispatched one fire engine and one ambulance to the scene.
At about 12.20pm, the collapsed shelter had yet to be removed and the area was cordoned off.
The incident happened after a driver of a lorry had forgotten to lower its crank when passing through the shelter, a Jurong-Clementi Town Council notice to residents wrote.
The lorry’s crank then hit the shelter, causing it to fall.
The lorry belonged to Tai Hoe Building Products.
“We are working with the SCDF to clear off the car park as soon as possible,’ said the Town Council. — TODAY
