Tragic incident unfolds on Pan-Island Expressway as car flips multiple times, driver fatally ejected

SINGAPORE — The Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) heading towards Changi after the Upper Bukit Timah Road exit witnessed an incident on last Friday night (23 June).

A car attempted to switch lanes to the left but lost control at a bend. It collided with another vehicle, spun out of control, and flipped multiple times before ultimately coming to rest on the road shoulder.

Regrettably, the 33-year-old driver was ejected from the car and landed on the second lane of the expressway.

A video capturing the incident has circulated online.

The dashcam footage, which has gained widespread attention, shows the black car maneuvering through traffic in the right-most lane of the PIE, overtaking vehicles on its left.

Eventually, it lost control at the bend, collided with another car, and flipped multiple times, resulting in the driver being thrown from the vehicle.

The overturned car came to rest on the road shoulder, causing debris to scatter across the road.

A 33-year-old male driver was pronounced dead

At 9 pm on that day, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) received notification of the accident on the PIE heading towards Changi after the Upper Bukit Timah Road exit.

An SCDF paramedic pronounced the driver dead upon discovering him lying motionless.

According to the police, two cars were involved in the incident. The other vehicle was driven by a 33-year-old male, with a 23-year-old woman as his passenger. Both individuals were conscious and transported to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

Approximately 20 police officers arrived at the scene of the accident, which caused a three-hour traffic congestion after lane closures were necessary, as reported by Shin Min Daily News.

Investigations into the incident are currently underway.
