A 71-year-old cabby and his passenger were taken to hospital after the taxi he was driving crashed into a lamp post at the junction of Punggol Road and Punggol Field on Saturday night (June 6).

Stomper Catt alerted Stomp to the incident and shared a video she took from her home.

A lamp post is seen leaning over the vehicle as passers-by walk around the taxi.

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the accident at 10.20pm.

"The 71-year-old male taxi driver and his 61-year-old male passenger were conscious when conveyed to Changi General Hospital," a police spokesman said.
