PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - A slight slip led to a luxury car crashing into a foodcourt at Menara Millenium in Damansara.

The incident, which took place at 10.10am on Friday (Sept 30), occurred when the owner of a Bentley accidentally stepped on the accelerator while attempting to retrieve a parking access card, which had fallen on the floor of the vehicle.

According to City Traffic Investigation and Legal Affairs staff officer Shafie Daud, no injuries were reported, as there were only a few people inside the foodcourt at the time.

He said that the case is being investigated for carelessness under Rule 10 of the Road Traffic Rules 1959.

The owner of the Bentley said that he was alone in the car during the incident, and said that he has made a police report.

He dismissed rumours that the son of Wanita Umno chief Tan Sri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil was involved in the incident.

The New Straits Times reported that the driver is a lawyer. He was about to leave the carpark and had grabbed his parking access card to tap on the reader, but dropped it.

While trying to pick the card up, he accidentally stepped on the accelerator, causing the car to lurch forward and ram three guardrails.
