SINGAPORE - A covered walkway in Bukit Batok was damaged after a crane lorry ran into it on Wednesday (July 20).

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said that it was alerted to the incident between Block 504 and Block 506, Bukit Batok Street 52, at 2.57pm.

No SCDF assistance was required as there were no injuries, it added.

Police said that the 46-year-old driver was arrested in relation to the case. Police investigations are ongoing, it added.

 

Photos posted online showed red tiles that fell off the roof of the walkway and were scattered on the road.

It appeared that the crane boom was not lowered when the lorry drove under the walkway.

There was a similar incident last month, when a lorry with an attached crane crashed into a covered walkway at Bukit Batok Avenue 6 on June 17.

The walkway toppled and crushed a car.
