PETALING JAYA: A passers-by had the shock of their lives when a roof from a nearby house crashed on three vehicles near a car showroom in Jalan Seksyen 13/2, Petaling Jaya.
In the 4.59pm incident, two Renault and one Perodua Myvi were wrecked when the roof crashed onto the cars after being flown by strong winds.
The passer-by who spoke under the condition of anonymity said that he was taking shelter from the rain at a nearby shop before hearing a loud bang.
"I saw something 'flying' but I couldn't exactly pinpoint what it was since the rain was really heavy.
"The next thing I know, there was a loud sound. I actually thought there was a road accident nearby but it turns out to be this (the incident) instead," he said on Monday.
Selangor Fire and Rescue Department operations assistant director Mohd Sani Harul said a team arrived at the scene several minutes after the report was received.
"There was no victim and the scene has been cleared," he said.
Meanwhile, three cars were wrecked when a tree fell on to the vehicles at Medan Athinahappan 1, Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
An official from the Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department said no victims were injured in the 5pm incident.
"The vehicles - two Proton Perdana and one Toyota Camry - were badly damaged," he said.
