Runaway vehicle backs into PM's official car, Najib unhurt

KUALA LUMPUR: A man had a tense moment when his parked car rolled back into the official car of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at the entrance of the Parliament building here Wednesday morning.

Kuala Lumpur Police chief Datuk Mohmad Salleh said the man, in his 20s, was said to have forgotten to engage the handbrake of his Volvo car when he parked his car temporarily to collect a security pass at around 9.50am.

"The Prime Minister was unhurt in the incident. Najib was on his way to Parliament," he told reporters at city police headquarters.

He added that Najib's car, a Proton Perdana did not sustain any damage in the incident.

Mohmad said investigations did not reveal any criminal intention in the incident, which was investigated under the Road Transport Act 1987. - Bernama
