The 61-year-old woman, whose name has not been released, was driving through the Jurong East Central area of Singapore when she spotted the insect in her red Mazda.

The Mazda smashed into the bottom of a flight of stone steps leading to a pedestrian bridge over the road she was driving along.

The woman, who was alone in the car, suffered minor injuries and was taken to the Ng Teng Fong General Hospital for treatment. 

Her son arrived on the scene shortly after the accident.

Later, photographs of the scene – showing the badly damaged Mazda smashed into the steps – prompted jokes on social media.

Kelvin Ti said: ‘The driver thought it was a new flyover?’

Allson Ng added: ‘She thought that’s the stairway to heaven’.
