9 cars crushed in wall collapse near R-Mall, Thane
On Saturday morning, a compound wall shared by two buildings near R-Mall in Thane collapsed due to heavy rain, crushing the cars parked underneath it.
The compound wall was located between R-Mall and Runwal Estate Housing complex at Ghodbunder road in Thane.
Nine cars parked on the side of Runwal Estate housing complex were crushed under the wall. The debris caused the roof of the cars to bend under the weight, resulting in breaking or cracking the front and rear windshields of most cars.
Immediately after the incident, officials from Thane fire brigade and Thane Regional Disaster Management Cell (RDMC) reached the spot and got the debris cleared.
No casualties were reported due to the incident.
Thane has been experiencing heavy rainfall over the last one week, although this is the first major wall collapse incident reported since the onset of this monsoon.
