On Wednesday (17 Nov) morning, an accident involving 2 lorries occurred at 36 Penjuru Place. The video of the accident was posted on the Singapore roads accident.com Facebook group.
One of the lorries was seen parked along the road shoulder. Out of nowhere, another lorry who probably did not notice the stationary vehicle ended up rear-ending it.

According to SCDF, they were alerted to the accident at around 5.35am.
