Car Splits In Half In Fatal Seletar Accident On 11 Aug

Fatal accidents are tragic, especially so when they occur on Singapore soil.

A motorcyclist passed away last week in an accident at Tuas and today, yet another accident claimed one life — this time in Seletar.

On 11 Aug, images and videos of the car split in half made their rounds on social media.

The accident occurred on the CTE towards SLE, at a slip road into Seletar West Link.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) pronounced one person dead at the scene.

Flipped onto its side with its tires askew, the back half of the car seems to be in a similar terrible state.
