Fumbling at your new job? You are not alone.

A taxi driver lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a pillar at the ground floor of Block 414 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10 last Friday (Mar 10), at around 1pm.

According to Shin Min Daily News, the cabby told someone at the scene that he was new at his job and not familiar with operating the taxi. As such, he lost control of the taxi and reversed into the pillar.

"He said it was lucky that there were no passengers in the vehicle at the time," added the source.

In response to media queries, ComfortDelGro said no one was injured in the incident except the taxi driver, who was treated for back pains.
