A bronze Audi car crashed into the side of a road and overturned in Sai Wan Ho in Hong Kong Island East on Sunday afternoon.

At about 3pm, the driver of the car lost control while climbing up Yiu Hing Road, bumping into the curb near Tung Hei Court, which is a government-subsidized estate, the Oriental Daily reported.

The car flipped upside down and had white smoke coming out, according to a video clip that circulated widely over the internet.

A female driver, who sustained minor injuries, was able to get out of the vehicle by herself but was sent to hospital as she became emotionally distraught after the accident. No one else was injured.

Firemen splashed water on the car to cool it down, Metro Daily reported.
