Changi Coast Road crash leaves car a mangled mess
The front of the car was a mangled mess.
But the tipper truck it had collided with had only a damaged rear lamp.
The accident happened at around 2pm on Monday along the left lane of Changi Coast Road.
The driver of the silver car, a 30-year-old man, was taken conscious to Changi General Hospital in an ambulance.
The truck driver was uninjured.
A supervisor at the tipper truck company, who wanted to be known only as Mr Koh, 44, told The New Paper yesterday that he had not been at the scene when the accident happened, but he went there to make sure everything was all right.
"I wanted to make sure that the truck driver from my company was okay and to inspect the extent of damage on our company's truck," he said.
Mr Koh added that the truck driver and a passing male jogger helped pull the driver out after the crash. They then called for an ambulance.
The truck driver had just completed an errand and was leaving nearby Aviation Park Road.
Said Mr Koh: "There is not much we can do. We just have to ensure our company's drivers don't violate traffic rules."
The truck driver declined comment.
Chinese evening daily Shin Min Daily News reported that the two vehicles skidded about 100m before coming to a stop.
