SINGAPORE: A 58-year-old man was killed and three others were injured on Tuesday (Apr 21) night in an accident involving a lorry, taxi and car at a Yio Chu Kang Road traffic junction.
The police said they were alerted shortly after 9pm on Tuesday, to an accident at the junction of Phillips Avenue, Yio Chu Kang Road and Serangoon North Avenue 1.
The lorry driver involved in the crash was found “lying motionless” at the location and was later pronounced dead by an SCDF paramedic at the scene.
According to dash cam footage circulating online, a lorry was seen dashing through a traffic junction when the traffic lights were not in its favour.
A yellow taxi crashed into the lorry, sending both vehicles spinning. People were seen coming to the aid of those involved in the accident.

A 50-year-old female passenger in the lorry was conscious when she was taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, the police added.
Also taken to the same hospital were a 56-year-old taxi driver and his 57-year-old female passenger. Both were conscious at the time.
