A lorry carrying soil got stuck on the bridge after the lorry’s loading section was lifted in an incident at Kilometer 44 Jalan Klang-Teluk Intan, near Taman Penggawa, Sungai Lias, here, yesterday.
Sabak Bernam District Police Chief, Superintendent Agus Salim Mohd Alias, said the incident is believed to have occurred at 4.45 pm when the heavy vehicle involved finished lowering the ground at the construction area.
“The lorry then resumed its journey. Suddenly, the ‘bucket’ section was stuck on the bridge, believed to be due to damage to the hydraulic button.

He said, as a result of the accident, the lorry driven by the victim suffered damage to the ‘bucket’ part.
“The case is being investigated in accordance with Rule 10 of the Road Traffic Rules 1959 (Rule 10 LN 166/59),” he said.
