SINGAPORE: A police car ended up hanging off a step onto a pedestrian footpath after an officer "misjudged the perimeter of the driveway", police said on Thursday (Nov 8) in response to a photo of the incident that had been posted on Facebook. 

Police said that the incident occurred outside Changi City Point at about 5.25pm on Wednesday.

The picture was posted on Facebook group SG Road Vigilante on Wednesday, where it was shared more than 1,000 times. The picture was also posted on the ROADS.sg Facebook page.

Several Facebook users speculated that the incident happened after the driver exited the Changi City Point loading bay, adding that motorists had to make a right turn and then a 'sharp' left turn to exit the building.
