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.
