A Honda Vezel ended up in the drain after an accident with another car in Bukit Timah on Sunday afternoon (July 9).

Stomper M shared videos of the Honda being recovered from the drain near the junction of Queen's Road and Lutheran Road as bystanders watched.

The Stomper said: "The Honda was travelling straight. The other car that did not stop at the stop line, dashed out and collided with the Honda. The impact caused it to dive down into the 3m-deep canal."

Shin Min Daily News reported that a 35-year-old migrant worker, who was taking his lunch break nearby with his colleagues, heard the loud crash and went to see what had happened.

“I saw a car parked on the side of the road and looked farther ahead to find another car in a canal. After the woman and boy got out of the car, the woman anxiously asked the boy if he was injured, but the boy was terrified and speechless. He just stood there blankly,” he told Shin Min.

The worker immediately jumped into the canal and carried the boy, passing him to his colleagues outside the canal.

They also lowered a ladder for the woman to climb out of the canal.

In response to a Stomp query, the Singapore Civil Defence Force said it was alerted to the accident at about 12.25pm.

A 42-year-old female car driver and her 12-year-old male passenger were conscious when taken to National University Hospital.

The police told Stomp that a 60-year-old female driver is assisting with investigations, which are ongoing.

The Stomper said the Honda was hoisted out of the drain at around 4.55pm after about two hours and was towed to a workshop.

It is the second such accident at the road junction in three months. A Hyundai car ended up in the same drain after a collision with a taxi in April.
