A car crashed into a Geylang restaurant on Sunday (June 2). Several customers ran out just in time and managed to avoid getting hit by the speeding car.

According to an initial report by the news site Lianhe Zaobao, a 26-year-old woman lost control of her car and crashed into the ABC Bistro along Geylang and Kallang Roads last Sunday afternoon.

There were about 20 customers inside the restaurant when the incident happened. Fortunately, people rushed out fast enough and no one was injured.

The driver allegedly felt dizzy, and before she could regain control of her car, it was already speeding towards the curb and into the restaurant.

People rushed towards the car to help the driver get out. The door was locked, so some people attempted to break the window with a kitchen knife. A witness by the name of Mr. Qui told Lianhe Zaobao that the driver looked shocked and pale but was still conscious. According to a report by The New Paper, other bystanders tried to put cloth into the driver’s mouth to prevent her from biting her tongue as she appeared to be suffering from a seizure.

The driver was taken to Tan Tock Seng hospital afterwards.

Witnesses added that the dark purple Honda sustained damages to its hood and the bumper had fallen off. Staff said that people usually hung around the area where the car crashed, but it was fortunate that no one was standing there during the accident. The restaurant did not get damaged as well.

Police are still investigating the incident. -/TISG
