Getting impatient with your driving tests?

Well, don’t be – every once in awhile we’re reminded of the importance of road safety.

Even off the roads, in the carparks, it’s equally important as well.

Here’s why.

Lorry crashes into carpark railing, driver fell five floors

An accident involving a lorry took the life of one man on Saturday (22 Oct).

The fatal accident occurred in a multi-storey carpark located in an industrial building named Woodlands Spectrum at 2 Woodlands Sector 1.

But how exactly did it happen?

Shortly after midnight, at 12:30am on Saturday, the deceased was driving a lorry on the fifth floor of the multi-storey carpark.

From the tyre marks at the scene, the driver had reached a T-junction and intended to make a right-turn.

Instead, he lost control of the vehicle.

The lorry went straight ahead instead, crashing into the railing on the side wall.

The driver, unfortunately, was flung out of the lorry through the windshield, and over the ledge.

He then fell five storeys down to his death.
