A driver and his two passengers are on the run after their car crashed into another vehicle in Farrer Road on Jan 21.

Photos of the aftermath of the accident posted on Facebook show a grey Honda car with a crumpled bonnet against a kerb, with its licence plate on the ground.

In one of the photos, a machete can be seen in the driver’s footwell.

When contacted, the police said they were alerted to a case of hit-and-run involving two cars along Farrer Road towards Adam Road at about 10.25pm.

A 61-year-old male car driver was taken conscious to the National University Hospital, said the Singapore Civil Defence Force and the police.

The police added that the other car driver and his two passengers had left the scene, and efforts to trace them were under way.

Police investigations are ongoing.
