A young boy was allegedly left by his mother inside a car at Serangoon Gardens, and he then allegedly took the wheel and crashed his mum’s car into another parked car.
The netizen who witnessed the accident, shared on Facebook that the woman had left her young son inside her BMW at the carpark in Serangoon Gardens on 7 August at about 10.20am.
The engine of the car was purportedly left running, and the 8-9 year old boy then allegedly took the wheel and drove into a white Lexus that was parked opposite his mother’s car.
A small crowd then gathered around the car, and the Lexus suffered visible, albeit minor, damage.
Here is what the netizen said
Just witnessed an accident
The driver of BMW left her son in her parked car while the engine was still running. The 8 to 9 Yr old son decided to drive the car and crashed into the car opposite..
Luckily no one was between the 2 cars…. Thank God that no one is hurt…
Therefore, never never leave an engine running idle… I always kill my engine while waiting or loading / unloading…
Someone could have been killed or seriously injured today
