A 40-year-old driver was arrested for suspected drink driving after his van crashed through the railing of a central road divider at the junction of Hougang Street 52 and Hougang Avenue 8 on Mar 13.

Stomper Chris alerted Stomp to the incident and shared a photo he took at about 3.15pm.

"This was the same spot where an auntie was run over by a delivery van last year," he said.

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the accident at about 1.55pm.

"The 40-year-old male driver was subsequently arrested for suspected drink driving," the spokesman said.
