Now I know why when you make a mess it’s sometimes called a skidmark.

Watch this video to see what kind of mess the lorry and taxi made when they came together.

What happened? 

On 1 May 2023, a crash involving a lorry and a Hyundai taxi took place at the junction of Bras Basah Road and Nicoll Highway in front of Suntec Convention Centre.

It is unclear as to the causes of the crash as the two cars are faced away from each other. The lorry was facing towards the entrance of Esplanade MRT while the taxi still faced the direction of the road. Think of one of those diagrams for vectors in O-Levels (ughhhhh).

The lorry has been flipped to its side, while the taxi is some distance away from it with an open fuel tank and missing its entire front end.

I’m really confused by this crash because the taxi is some distance away from the lorry, facing a completely different direction than the lorry even after impact. But somehow it was not hit with enough force to flip the taxi over or deal more structural damage.

The video also shows a glimpse of a deployed airbag in the taxi, but no signs of any one having been inside the vehicle. SCDF personnel were present to close off the scene and gather evidence from the taxi. The taxi also left a trail of fluids behind it and intermittent skid marks on the road.

If the trail is wet, does it become diarrhea instead?

We do not know the condition of the drivers or if any pedestrians were involved.

Online chatter

Many speculate speeding on at least one driver’s fault, with one commenter joking about testing the new F1 route.

And of course, someone had to bring attention to the skid mark.

  • 5 reasons why staycations are still relevant

    We all missed being able to travel during the dark and uncertain days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even when Vaccinated Travel Lanes were introduced, few of us were interested. After all, undergoing numerous PCR tests is uncomfortable and being subject to quarantines, especially if you catch COVID, is hardly how anyone wants to spend their holiday. So, a lot of folks became 'tourists in their own country'. And staycations, or staycays for short, became popular. Being cooped up in one's ho
