A carpark barrier arm hit a driver's car bonnet after he failed to stop at a gantry in Ang Mo Kio on Saturday (August 17).

Stomper Dave contributed a video of the incident which occurred near Djitsun Mall at 5 Ang Mo Kio Central 2, about 1pm. 

Dave told Stomp: "I was with our family in our car, driven by my son."

Dave said: "Some cars flashed and honked at him when the car exceeded the stop line at the turn. He practically had his whole car on a lane.

"He did not stop at the gantry and had the barrier crashing down on his car. There was a car behind us and my son reversed the little we could.

"Without waiting for both doors to close, he suddenly reversed his car. The car could be seen jerking twice in reverse after the barrier was raised. Seems like a poor awareness of gear status."
