Police have arrested a taxi driver who repeatedly rammed his taxi into several cars outside the Old Airport Road Food Centre on Saturday. Though police have not said what the motive behind the act was, but they said that investigation is going on.
According to reports, police were alerted about the incident at around 10am on Saturday following which the 69-year-old taxi driver was taken into custody. After the initial investigation, officers have ruled out drink-driving or dispute as the cause of the accident, reported The Straits Times.
In the incident, at least three cars got damaged. In a video posted on citizen journalism website Stomp, the yellow Comfort cab was seen ramming into two vehicles, parked in front of the taxi, and one vehicle parked behind without any possible reason.
The company to which the taxi belonged, ComfortDelGro, expressed regret about the incident and offered assistance to the owners of the damaged cars. "We are relieved no one was injured during the incident. The driver has given his statement to the police and we are assisting them in their investigations. We have also activated our loss adjustors to follow up with owners of the cars that were affected," said the company's corporate communications officer, as reported.
