Mercedes hit and run at multi-storey carpark, detaches bumper from parked car


Imagine going back to your parked cark only to discover the front bumper detached in a hit-and-run accident.

A black Mercedes was caught on camera damaging a vehicle at a multi-storey carpark and promptly leaving the scene.

Community page Complaint Singapore appealed for information on the incident which happened inside the Trivex building at 8 Burn Road on Aug 5 at around 4:35 pm.

The parked vehicle’s dashboard camera captured the Mercedes reversing into the empty space beside the camcar.

From the camera angle, it appears that the Mercedes positioned itself too close to the parked vehicle before leaving the scene.
