A silver Toyota Camry driving along Jurong West Avenue 5 on Saturday (Mar. 27) morning ended up upside-down, after swerving to avoid a parked bus.

In the process of doing so, it also almost hit a pedestrian who was standing on the road divider.

Didn't seem to see parked bus

In a dashcam video posted by Facebook page, the car can be seen cruising along Jurong West Avenue 5.

A large black bus is parked along the kerb, blocking most of the left-most lane.

The driver does not seem to see the bus until it is almost too late. Suddenly, the car swerves sharply to the right, to avoid hitting the bus.

As a result, it mounts the road divider, hits a tree, and topples upside-down.
