‘Driverless’ lorry mysteriously moves on its own, damaging several parked cars

That's some real bad luck.

KEPONG –A lorry that was supposedly ‘parked’ was caught on tape moving on its own and colliding with several parked cars along the road, leaving netizens astounded.

According to the CCTV footage that was shared on TikTok, the incident was believed to have occurred in front of a factory in Kepong at 11:38am today (Dec 15).

After the lorry pulled up into a car park, a man in a yellow shirt, believed to be the driver, alighted from the vehicle and went on his way.

The OP also claimed that the driver had presumably pulled the handbrakes before getting off the lorry.
