An Isuzu cement truck beats the red light signal while turning and hits an SBS bus along Aljunied Road on Thursday (June 4).

The force of the collision threw the bus driver out of his seat and caused the vehicle to mount the road divider, resulting in a second crash with a stationary Toyota Hiace van.

Based on the video, the bus ended up crashing through a fence of a nearby construction site while the cement truck appeared to be damaged from the collision as well. 

According to this Mothership post, the bus driver and two other passengers have been sent to Raffles Hospital on the same day. The driver has since been discharged and is on hospitalisation leave.

With an increasing number of heavy vehicle accidents in recent years, it is wiser for drivers to slow down and take more caution while manoeuvring these bulky vehicles.

    Father and son almost get crushed by C-HR with p-plates

    TL;DR – A parked C-HR with p-plates suddenly accelerates and almost mauls a father and son at an open-air carpark. Things would have gotten ugly if they had been one second slower.     There can be miracles While some of us might not be believers, a recent video uploaded on Roads.sg might change your mind. The incident occurred on 10th September 2021. Here’s the 35-second video: A one-second difference between life and death In an open-air carpark, location unknown, a father and his son casually walk past a cam car. If you observe the video, you’ll notice a black Toyota C-HR directly opposite the cam car slowly inching forward as the father and son enter the frame. The C-HR then suddenly accelerates and crashes into the cam car just as the lucky duo clears the danger. If it had been a second earlier, the father and son would have been caught in the collision. Let’s address the elephant in the room I’m sure everyone noticed the p-plates on the C-HR. Could it be because of the driver’s inexperience?   Or it could have been a case of the driver talking on his phone? He was wearing his wireless earphones. And, if so, why wasn't his handbrake up? Online Chatter But, by 2040, no more manual car already. If everyone drives like this in 2040, scary eh! I’m just glad that by some miracle, a family did not lose a father and a son to a negligent driver.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Beware of this Isuzu truck driver from hell with multiple road offences in Singapore

    The spotlight is on an Isuzu truck driver who has been called out for reckless driving and causing multiple accidents in just ONE MONTH! Incident 1 The first incident occurred on June 2, where the truck attempted to overtake another tipper truck on the TPE. In the first half of the video, you'll notice the truck following the second truck in the middle lane of the expressway. After half a minute, the truck driver gets impatient and dangerously shifts to Lane 1 to overtake the tipper truck that was impeding his path.  The second tipper truck swerves slightly to its left and almost collides with a third truck travelling on the left-most lane.  The Isuzu truck had already exceeded the speed limit of 60 km/h. Incident 2 The second incident occurred on July 31 at Changi Village Road. A cyclist was cycling on the left side of the road when the truck dangerously passed by him, squeezing him off the road.  Luckily, the cyclist managed to end up on the curb instead of underneath the truck. The truck failed to adhere to the 1.5m spacing between vehicles and cyclists. Thankfully, the cyclist managed to sustain minor superficial injuries and was sent to the hospital for treatment immediately. The impact damaged the bicycle as well. Netizens’ reactions TBH, there should be stricter rules surrounding the use of heavy vehicles on the road.   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Yaris driver whips out weapon and attempts to beat motorcyclist in a fit of rage

    TL;DR – A Toyota Yaris driver makes a wide turn, ends up on opposing lane upsetting a couple of motorcyclists who made gestures at him. Unhappy, the driver confronts them and even takes out a weapon from his car.   This incident happened earlier today (2nd August 2021). A road raging Toyota Yaris driver whips out a weapon from his car in anger and it’s all been recorded on video! Here’s the video for your viewing pleasure.   What right do you have to be angry sir? At the start of this 94-second video, we see a red Yaris making a wide turn and ending up on the opposing lane. He’s clearly in the wrong from the get go, so what right has he got to be angry? Gangsta uncle The motorcyclist reportedly made a gesture at the Yaris which infuriated the driver. If I’m not wrong, I heard the uncle say To which the biker replies Followed by short inaudible dialogue and a long uncomfortable silent stare down. The motorcyclist in front, presumably a friend tries to step in to defuse the situation. But does that help? Nope. Uncle has a weapon, I repeat, Uncle has a weapon! The uncle goes to his car to take out a weapon. Is that a fishing rod? Maybe it’s a golf club? Someone said it looks like a Samurai sword but I’m going to go with fishing rod. A lady tries to calm the angry Uncle but it did not seem to work. The video then cuts off leaving us to wonder what the heck happened after. Online Chatter I think anyone’s lj would tbh. All plausible scenarios Want to know what I think? I think if you’re in the wrong, and you know you’re in the wrong, just shut the hell up and go on your way. See la, now you’re going to be famous. Please don’t find me and beat me with your fishing rod.   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    You know you have it made in life when you can use a BMW Z4 to house your potted plants

    This is probably one of the most luxuriously decorated bus stops in Singapore. The video showcases a bus stop decorated with potted plants, statues of white elephants and, get this, a yellow BMW Z4 Roadster. Yep, you read that right – a yellow BMW Z4 Roadster just sitting there as part of the decor. I don’t even know where to begin. Whose car does this belong to? Why is it just sitting there? Does LTA know about this? How did the owner come about with this idea? Where exactly is this BMW located? Sitting at 3 Chin Bee Avenue, the yellow car decoration is thought to belong to the company P’art 1 Design. According to the company’s social media pages, it is responsible for providing display lights for different festivals and events throughout Singapore. This includes the Hari Raya light display at Geylang Serai, the Deepavali light display at Little India and Christmas displays for malls. While this Google Street view screengrab did not feature the BMW (as it is taken in July 2020), the white elephant statues indicate that this is the exact location that is featured on the viral video. Netizens’ reactions Honestly, as long as it’s legally okay for the owner to place his vehicle there, I don’t see the harm in using this car as décor. It's obvious that it's not in use anymore and it certainly brings more vibrance and life to the area by being a cool statement piece.      -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
