A man surnamed Lin crashed his SUV into the flower pots that serve as a security barrier outside the Presidential Office Building at the intersection of Chongqing Rd. and Ketagalan Blvd. at around 6:00 am yesterday.
Mr. Lin claimed that he lost control of his vehicle when he tried to take pictures of the building as he drove down Ketagalan Blvd. The authorities are calling the incident accidental but still investigating. The 39-year-old Lin will likely be charged with obstruction of official business.
