According to a resident, a red Toyota crashed through a gap in a concrete barrier at the open-air carpark.

The driver, who the resident said looked like he was in his 60s or 70s, had blood stains on his shirt and an abrasion on his right arm.

"He looked like he was in a daze, probably in a state of shock," said the resident, who declined to be named.

Police investigations are ongoing.
