Several Stompers saw a car that had run a parking barrier down and mount a kerb at a Housing Board block in Sengkang on Tuesday (July 9) at about 7pm. 

Stomper Helmi first alerted Stomp to the incident with photos showing a white car that had driven onto a kerb.

After the photo was published on Stomp's various social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) on Wednesday (July 10), Stomper Keith shared photos of the incident's aftermath, where a tree had fallen. 

Keith's photo was subsequently published on the same platforms on Thursday (July 11). 

A third Stomper, Red Ranger, told Stomp that he was about to park his motorbike there and go for dinner when he saw the scene.

He shared photos with Stomp of a carpark with its parking barrier on the ground and of the white car on a kerb.

He said: "I didn't see how it happened but when I came into the carpark, I already saw that the barrier was on the ground.

"From what I saw of the vehicle, the impact must have been quite hard and wondered what could've gone wrong in a small carpark to lead to this incident."

In response to Stomp queries, the police said: "On July 9 at about 5.27pm, the police were alerted to an accident involving a car at Block 260B Sengkang East Way.

"The driver, a 47-year-old man, was conscious when conveyed to Sengkang General Hospital. 

"Police investigations are ongoing."
