SINGAPORE: The driver of a Mercedes lost control of his car while reversing at the car park of Block 102 at Yishun Avenue 5 on Monday morning.

It crashed into two stalls.
Eyewitnesses said the car was speeding.
"I see the car come here, ’go stun’ (reversed) very fast," an eyewitness told Channel NewsAsia.
CCTV footage obtained from a nearby shop showed the Mercedes in reverse, with the driver’s door open, hitting several goods stocked outside the shops.
