What a near miss.

Stomper Dino was driving behind a lorry on the Kranji Expressway towards Bukit Timah Expressway on June 3 at 6.04pm.

In the video submitted by Dino, a black object can be seen falling out of the back of the lorry and bouncing off the road towards the Stomper.

Luckily, the object flew past the left side of his vehicle.

Dino told Stomp: "My friend and I were shocked and very fortunate that it did not hit us. We looked back and saw a car stop behind us. Not sure if the object had hit the car.

"We were more concerned if there had been a motorcyclist because that could have taken a life."

The company name printed on the side of the lorry is Maco Technical Pte Ltd. Stomp has contacted the company for more information.
