A female witness said the car allegedly went out of control and hit her vehicle after crashing into the temporary office.

The driver was described to be sober and was conveyed to Singapore General Hospital. It is unclear if the incident was a result of human error or a vehicular issue.

Drive responsibly

Thankfully, it seems that no other people were injured as a result of both incidents.
