Friends and family gathered on Friday (Dec 23) afternoon to bid a final farewell to Mr Jackie Liong Kuo Hwa, the driver who was killed in the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) accident on Monday.
Mr Liong, 37, was cremated Friday afternoon at Mandai Crematorium following a funeral service in church.
His wife, Madam Venny Oliver, 37, who survived the crash, is recovering from surgery but was allowed to leave the hospital to bid a last goodbye to her husband. She attended the church funeral service for him but was not seen at Mandai Crematorium.
Mr Liong was killed after a silver Mercedes-Benz travelling against the flow of traffic slammed head-on into the Toyota Vios he was driving. His wife was a passenger in the car.
The driver of the Mercedes-Benz, Lim Chai Heng, 53, was charged on Tuesday with causing death by reckless or dangerous driving at National University Hospital, where he had been warded for his injuries, the police said.
Other than Lim and Mdm Oliver, two others - a couple on a motorcycle - were injured in the morning peak hour accident that saw four cars, one motorcycle and one private bus wrecked. The wall of the expressway before the Tuas West Road exit was also severely damaged.
