Mr John Toi was driving along Mountbatten Road on July 28 at noon when he saw an unusual sight.

Right in front of him was a car almost entirely covered with cement - the aftermath of an unfortunate accident with a truck.

The tarmac was also splattered with grey cement.

The 58-year-old remisier took a picture of the site and sent it to citizen journalism website Stomp on the same day.

"It looks like the truck braked suddenly before the red light, causing the cement it was carrying to spill through the back panel and covering the small car just behind it," said Mr Toi in his posting.

"The car looked like a Suzuki Swift, but it was so covered with cement that I couldn't see anything else besides the shape of it," he told The Straits Times on Monday.

Traffic Police confirmed they received a call at 12.36pm a day earlier. They said there was an accident involving a car and a tipper truck at the junction of Mountbatten Road and Stadium Boulevard.

No injuries were reported and no further police assistance was required.
