YESTERDAY, 11.50AM, CTE
A black Toyota (photo) flipped onto its side on the Central Expressway (CTE) shortly before noon yesterday.
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) said the accident took place near the Jalan Bahagia exit towards the Seletar Expressway.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force was alerted to the accident at 11.47am and dispatched an ambulance. But the driver, a man in his 20s, declined to be taken to the hospital.
The New Paper understands that the driver had lost control of the car, causing it to flip onto its left side.
Mr Juju, 30, a private paramedic who declined to give his full name, was driving his patient home at around 11.45am when he witnessed the accident.
He told TNP: "I was on the CTE after the Jalan Bahagia exit when I saw the car hit the centre divider and flip.
"Two cars stopped on the side and two people were knocking on the car window, trying to get the driver out.
"But the driver, who was dressed in white, climbed out by himself. He didn't look injured."
LTA said the accident affected the right-most lane and caused a 6km-long traffic jam on the CTE.
