Drunk driver?

I heard a loud crash at 4am below my block. When I looked out, I saw this minivan crashed into a neighbouring block void deck. I can’t fathom how someone could lose control of his vehicle on a relatively straight portion of the road. My only explanation is that he might be drunk.

Update: Sembawang Town Council wrote to me the next day to inform me that they have asked the police to investigate this incident, and will be sending a structural engineer to check out the block. Kudos to SBTC for its quick action.
