Truck axle breaks and hits car

This has just happened in Sibu Sarawak. A trailer running along Rantau Panjang ‘lost’ its rear axle and it went flying in the air and hit a Toyota Vios smack on the front windscreen. There has been no report of any injuries but this could have been a fatal accident if it was a busy road and the axle had hit a motorcyclist. This is why proper checks must be conducted on old commercial vehicles and their road worthiness as they are on the road for hours a day, seven days a week and with little care and money put into maintenance.
