On a Thursday, two separate road accidents occurred at Jurong West and along the Central Expressway (CTE), leaving 3 people hospitalised and prompting the police and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) to launch investigations.
The First Accident: Motorcycle and Car Collision
The first incident took place at 7.40 pm at the junction of Jurong West Street 63 towards Jurong West Street 64. It involved a motorcycle and a car, and it unfolded in a matter of seconds.
A 51-year-old male motorcyclist was involved in the collision. Fortunately, he remained conscious and was promptly taken to the National University Hospital for medical attention.
A video shared on the SG Road Vigilante (SGRV) Facebook page captured the moment of impact. As the motorcycle crossed the junction, it clipped the front of a silver sedan that was waiting to make a discretionary right turn. The collision sent the rider and his bike careening across the junction before they landed in some bushes.
The 45-year-old male car driver is cooperating with the police investigations at the time of writing.
The Second Accident: Collision on the Central Expressway
The second accident occurred at about 8 pm, involving two cars traveling on the Central Expressway (CTE) towards the Seletar Expressway (SLE). This incident took place at the slip road heading towards the Braddell Road exit.
In this case, a dark sedan collided with a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV), causing the MPV to turn turtle. The momentum of the collision caused the MPV to slide along the road and flip over again. A 66-year-old male driver and a 44-year-old female passenger from the MPV were taken conscious to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
A video posted on the SGRV Facebook page documented the collision sequence. It showed the dark sedan crossing a road chevron before colliding with the MPV, which was taking the slip road exit towards Braddell Road. The sedan then moved back across the Braddell flyover exit before crashing into a hedge in the middle of the road.
The video concluded with a man in a T-shirt alighting from the sedan and hurrying to the flipped-over MPV to check on the occupants inside.
As with the first accident, the police have launched investigations into the circumstances surrounding this collision.
