A car mounted a kerb and crashed into a road sign and bollard along Balestier Road on Monday evening (June 26).

Stomper Lau alerted Stomp to a video of the incident that was posted on SG Road Vigilante's Facebook page.

In the video, the driver of a white Honda Vezel appears to have lost control of the vehicle that knocks down a road sign and bollard before going back onto the road.
