Trapped after collision
A van driver was trapped after a collision with a car caused the van to flip on its right side.
He was later rescued from the van by passers-by.
The accident occurred at 3.35pm yesterday on the Pan Island Expressway, in the direction of Tuas after the Pioneer Road North exit.
Mr Mohamed, 45, who drove past the site about five minutes after the accident happened, called The New Paper.
"I saw the van flipped over with the driver trapped inside.
"There were a few people trying to rescue him," he said.
He was in slow-moving traffic after Lanes 1 and 4 were affected.
When TNP reached the accident site, both drivers had already been taken to the National University Hospital (NUH). The Expressway Monitoring Advisory System recovery crew were preparing to tow both vehicles.
A motorcyclist who was at the scene said: "I saw the car driver being treated by a paramedic. He looked like he had hurt his head."
The van had a large dent on the rear of its roof and was missing both its windscreen and rear window. There were also some dents at the front. The car, a Lexus, was badly smashed on the front left and missing its front licence plate.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said that an ambulance was dispatched to the scene within eight minutes of receiving a call at 3.36pm. SCDF confirmed that two drivers had been taken to NUH, and that both of them were in their 50s.
