A photo shared in the same post showed a man and woman pushing a stroller on the pavement just opposite the crashed vehicle. The man appeared to be making a phone call.

It’s uncertain whether the family are linked to the vehicle or just passers-by.

However, the OP identified the car as an Opel Corsa-e, and said the incident happened along Tampines Avenue 9.

She lamented that the Corsa-e had become a “bumper car” after less than two months of usage.

Another eyewitness posted in the comments that she didn’t see the crash, but heard it.

There was apparently also a white car opposite, which luckily didn’t get hit, she said.

The photo she shared had a clearer view of the crash from above, with a large gap evidently in the railing where the car crashed through.

The OP claimed that she noticed the car was driven by a woman who was accompanied by her husband. The couple also has a kid, she added.

Netizens speculate over excess amount payable

Commenters on the post speculated how much in damage excess the driver would have to pay due to such an accident.

While some said it would amount to between S$5,000 and S$9,000, one netizen estimated it could be between S$10,000 and S$16,000. Another said the amount payable would be higher due to the damage to public property.

A commenter claimed that his friend had to pay more than S$6,000 even though the accident wasn’t his fault.

According to BlueSG’s website, the own damage excess applicable is S$5,000 for drivers aged 26 and above who’ve had a licence for over two years. Otherwise, it’s S$8,000. The same applies to the third-party excess.
