A taxi driver was conveyed to the hospital after the taxi he was driving crashed into a drain.
This happened at the grass patch near Potong Pasir Ave 1.
The taxi driver claimed that he was about to drive out of a carpark when the taxi, a Hyundai Sonata, accelerated for no apparent reason. The brakes did not appear to work. Instead the vehicle kept surging forward. As a result, he hit a van. To avoid hitting a big tree, the taxi drove up a grass patch and into the drain where it eventually stopped.
The taxi-driver sustained cracks on his ribs.
