Taxi slams into 8 cars and bike
His taxi damaged eight cars and a motorcycle, but the man behind the wheel claimed he had no idea what happened.
On Wednesday, at about 5.20pm, passers-by saw the taxi crashing into several cars at the carpark next to Block 443, Clementi Avenue 3.
They said the taxi was parked at the carpark when they heard a loud noise and saw the taxi move forward suddenly, reported Lianhe Wanbao.
A 19-year-old student, who wanted to be known only as Mr Huang, told the paper: "There was a bang from the engine, and the taxi surged forward and hit a black Honda, and then moved in another direction and hit a black Nissan."
The Honda was hit with such force that its headlights were smashed, and it mounted the kerb and hit another two cars behind it.
"The taxi then reversed and hit a Mercedes, a Mazda and a motorcycle," said Mr Huang.
The Mazda that was hit also ended up damaging two cars parked beside it.
The owner of the Honda, Mr Wang Jun Long, 31, who works in retail, told Lianhe Wanbao he spoke to the taxi driver.
"He said he was not drinking, and doesn't even know how it happened."
The taxi driver was also seen in shock, and kept hitting his forehead with his hands at the scene.
Miss Zhang Su Yin, 30, a pharmacist and owner of the damaged Nissan, told Lianhe Wanbao: "I heard the sound of the collision and a lot of people were talking about it, so I went to the parking lot to see what had happened."
She said she could only blame her bad luck, and hoped everything would be settled soon by the insurance companies.
A police spokesman told The New Paper they received a call at about 5.25pm on Wednesday requesting for assistance at the carpark.
No injuries were reported and the police are investigating.
