Car nearly crashes into man and girl
A speeding car narrowly missed two pedestrians on a walkway on Saturday.
In a Facebook video shared by user Yu Howard on Tuesday, a red car is seen driving onto a sheltered walkway outside De La Salle School in Choa Chu Kang at 7.40am.
The car, which initially appears to be out of control, swerves at the last moment to miss the man and the girl on the pavement along Choa Chu Kang Street 52.
The car misses the man by inches and crashes into a pillar of the walkway, uprooting it.

For a few moments, the front wheels of the car lift off the ground because of the impact and as the car returns to the ground, the bumper appears to come off.
The man turns around and faces the car as the impact sends it reversing towards him before it stops.
He then turns around and walks towards the girl, who ran off as the accident happened.
A police spokesman confirmed that no injuries were reported.
De La Salle School's vice-principal and media liaison officer declined comment about the incident.
A security guard at the school, who was on duty at the time, also declined to comment.
Another school security guard confirmed that the child who narrowly missed the crash was not a pupil of the school.
Police investigations are ongoing.
