SINGAPORE - Large squarish slabs, each bigger than a person, toppled off a trailer in Jurong East on Wednesday (Oct 16), resulting in at least two lanes of the road being blocked.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

Police were alerted to the accident at the junction of Toh Guan Road and Boon Lay Way at 7.17am.

The 45-year-old driver was issued with a summons for failing to properly secure goods on the vehicle, which resulted in the counterweight slabs falling off.
