The impact is big enough for it to bounce once after the initial impact.

It appears that the parking brake had not been applied.

A man is subsequently seen running towards the vehicle before getting in and reversing into the lot the lorry was in.

The lorry driver is seen inspecting Astra's vehicle but according to the Stomper, he did not leave behind any note or contact details.

Astra expressed concern for the pedestrians in the carpark who could have gotten hit by the runaway lorry.

He made a police report regarding the incident on the same day.

In response to a Stomp query, the police confirmed a report was lodged and investigations are ongoing.
