SINGAPORE - In a scene that some might say is rare on Singapore roads, two men were seen settling a dispute amicably with hugs and handshakes after an accident on Jan 20 (Wednesday).

Their vehicles, a car and a van, had collided at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5.

In the footage of the incident sent to Stomp by contributor Jonah, one of the men, who appeared to be middle-aged, was seen shouting at the other younger driver after the collision.

Both men then confronted each other.

Then in a surprising yet pleasant twist of events, the younger man was seen reaching out for a handshake and a hug.

The gesture seemed to calm the older man and, after that, the two men proceeded to check on the vehicles.

They then continued hugging and shaking hands before returning to their own vehicles.

Jonah said she was "amazed" at how "both parties settled off with a hug and brought peace".
