Mitsubishi Lancer driver crashes into a lamp post and flees the scene only to return back later on

Some events are beyond our control, such as getting into an accident with another motorist, due to plain oversight on his part.

However, if you were to get into an accident on your own like this Mitsubishi driver, then you only have yourself to blame:

What Happened?

A Mitsubishi Lancer EX was travelling on lane 2 along Sengkang East Drive when he veered off course, mounted the kerb and crashed into a lamp post, sending it to the ground.

The driver then alighted from his vehicle to retrieve items from the back seat and boot of his car.

After retrieving his items, the driver hurriedly flees away on foot.

But Wait...

Just when you thought it was over, the Mitsubishi driver does something else.

After fleeing from the scene, the driver decided to "u-turn" and headed back to his car.

He began searching high and low inside his car and the surrounding area while appearing to be looking for a specific item.

Moments later, he ditches his car again and flees from the scene. 

Later in the morning, traffic police could be seen at the accident scene, surveying the surrounding neighbourhood and investigating the accident.

The Possibilities

In all honesty, accidents such as the above could only happen for two possible reasons:

(1) Driving under the influence of alcohol; and/or 

(2) Driving under the influence of drugs.

Moreover, the fact that the driver's first instinct was to retrieve his belongings from his car and flee makes him even more sus.

Brace yourself, we will be hearing this song for a long time.

Seems like I am not the only one who thought so.

No CCTV also got dash cams and members of the public filming you. Sure tio caught within 24 hours (give or take)!

Could be that he was extremely urgent to take a dump and in the haste he lost control in driving. He's searching for the toilet roll or tissue paper, if any.

Can the car still be salvaged?

The engine compartment looks pretty banged up tho. And IMO, I don't think the repair cost is worthwhile for a COE car like the Lancer EX

  • P-plate Toyota Wish driver depletes all its demerit points in a case of reckless driving (where no hurt was caused)

    TL;DR – A Toyota Wish with p-plates dangerously cuts in front of a cam car, beats the red light and almost gets t-boned by another car   There’s a reason why car insurance companies charge a premium for new drivers. This 62-second video is one of the reasons: What happened? The video starts off by highlighting the exciting bits (think that’s the format SGRV is going for these days).

    Two sisters use a BMW Z4 for their errands; ends up getting the sports car perched on a kerb

    Mention "BMW sports car", and the first car that comes to your mind would be the reputable M series cars, such as the M3 and M4 or even cars like the 335i or 535i. Never will people think about BMW's under-appreciated sports car, the BMW Z4 - which many have cast their doubts about it being an actual sports car.  Despite the stigma that surrounds the BMW Z4, the German roadster remains too much for this female driver to handle: What Happened?
