Prime Minister Najib Razak was on his way to parliament when a car temporarily parked at the guard house at the compound's entrance rolled back and hit his Proton Perdana, a spokesman said.

The Volvo's driver had forgotten to engage the handbrake while he got out to get a security pass to enter parliament, he said.

"The car is slightly damaged. PM not hurt," the spokesman said in a text message.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Mohmad Salleh was quoted by the official Bernama news agency as saying that authorities investigated the man, who is in his 20s, but the probe did not reveal any criminal intention.
