Speeding car swerves into Prius
In a Facebook post on SG Road Vigilante, a red Kia Cerato was seen swerving into a blue Toyota Prius at high speed on the CTE Yio Chu Kang exit.
The incident took place at about 12.50am on Sunday (31 Jan).
A Grab driver who was dropping off passengers said he heard a roaring engine and gathered that there was someone speeding.
While he was able to slow down, the driver of the Prius was unable to react in time, he told The New Paper (TNP).
The impact caused the Prius to hit the roadside rails before flipping over.
Multiple drivers could be seen stopping their vehicles to render assistance.
A chaotic aftermath followed the crash, with debris such as glass shards sprinkled across multiple lanes.
A closer look at the flipped Prius revealed how badly mangled it became from the crash.
The bent wheels of the car and shattered windows testify to the force of the impact.
People could be seen discussing beside the crashed vehicles. However, it hasn’t been confirmed if they are those who were involved in the crash.
2 arrested for drink driving, injured sent to hospital
Fortunately, the occupants of the flipped car were still conscious.
A 44 year-old male driver and a female passenger were sent to the hospital while another refused to be taken, reported TNP.
The 27 year-old male driver of the Cerato was arrested for suspected drink driving.
While police was attending to the first accident, a motorcycle happened to crash into a police car at around 1.30am, TNP reported.
The 29-year-old male motorcyclist was also arrested for suspected drink driving, though luckily there were no injuries reported for the 2nd accident.
Stay vigilant and avoid drink driving
This chilling crash is a reminder that drink driving can result in serious accidents that offenders will regret.
Despite the severity of this accident, it is fortunate that there were no deaths reported.
However, others may not be as lucky in the future.
Therefore, do avoid driving after consuming alcohol. Safety should always come first when on the road.
