A chain collision occurred on the PIE expressway earlier today (9 June) at around 8:45 a.m., with a motorcyclist seen crashing through the rear windshield of a car with his legs sticking out.

Besides the motorcyclist, four other vehicles seemed to be involved in the collision.

While the specific details of the accident are still unknown, the video's description indicated that the lanes in both directions of the expressway were shortly closed afterwards. 

With an increasing number of chain collision accidents happening locally, it is important for all drivers to be alert and cautious on the road. It is better to be safe than sorry. 

We hope that everyone involved in the accident is okay. Further information and updates regarding the accident will be posted in this article. 

Update:

According to Mothership, it has been reported that the motorcyclist and a woman who was riding pillion on the same vehicle has unfortunately passed on from their injuries. 

We send our deepest condolences to their families.

    Is this guy on the bike hot or is he hot?

    Is the weather really that warm that you need to ride without clothes? This motorcyclist thinks so. Spotted on SGRV's Facebook and many other sources, a short-hair motorcyclist can be seen riding nude by the camera bike traveling along PIE towards changi. The nude rider then left the highway via the Bedok North Rd exit with the camera bike following closely, allowing us to get a closer look at this bewildering sight. Thankfully, the video that has been uploaded to the web doesn't show his private parts...

    What did the tree do to deserve that, Maserati?

    The Maserati GranTurismo is what I would call your "entry level supercar" or "pseudo supercar". It's not the fastest, neither does it handle the best, and its horsepower rating of 399bhp to 453bhp isn't what one would call lacking (depending whether you get an earlier or later model), it isn't up-to-par with the supercar horsepower levels of today. Off the top of my head, the least powerful supercar on sale today (I could be wrong) is the Audi R8 with 532bhp and rear wheel drive. Still, what the Maserati GranTurismo (and its convertible sibling, the GranCabrio) lack in horsepower, they more than make up for it in a sonorous exhaust note and Italian flair, as seen in this video. Also, the Maserati GranTurismo, especially the older, COE renewed units tend to be more affordable for a sports car, as seen here. Thus, with a low cost of entry (for a sports car), there are bound to be some people who would spring at the first chance of owning something that is exotic, two-seater and containing a Ferrari engine (yes, the V8 engine in the GranTurismo is from Ferrari, why else do you think it sounds so good?), and some of these drivers aren't exactly what you would say, experienced when it comes to driving a car that is rear-wheel drive and having double or more than double the horsepower of your average car in Singapore. Now now, I'm not pointing fingers here, but sometimes, the evidence speaks for itself. I don't think that's going to buff out..... Yup, definitely not going to buff out. I've heard of rear-wheel steering but that is some rear wheel angle right there. Doesn't look like that tree fared too well, either. Also, I did not know about this, but you can actually be fined for crashing into trees, starting from $2000 a tree? Wow, that's, uh, gratifying to know. I know that if you damage public property like lamposts, railing or fences in a traffic accident, you have to pay for those, but fines starting from $2000 for a tree?  One can only guess what happened to cause that accident. At the time of this post being written, which is the evening of 24 March, it has been raining for the better part of the afternoon, roads are still kind of damp from the rain, and the skies still look grey, which could possibly mean more rain later tonight. And judging from the pictures, the roads were wet, so either the driver of this car was having a bad day, or was driving a little too exuberantly on wet roads and didn't have the skill to keep him or herself out of trouble, or had tyres that couldn't really handle the wet asphalt. Now remember, these are all speculations, and I do not know what caused the accident. Let us wait for news from the proper channels to come out before we make any further assumptions.  For now, all I can perhaps assume is that maybe, just maybe, the driver of this GranTurismo took the words of Jeremy Clarkson a bit too literally, as seen from Clarkson's review of the Pagani Zonda R.... So if this already isn't enough of a reminder, drive carefully, people, especially in wet weather. More of it is forecasted for the coming weeks so it would be wise to play it safe. And should you need advice for how to drive safe in the rain, feel free to read these articles here, here and here, as written by my colleagues.

    Orange Lamborghini driven dangerously, skids on Raffles Ave

    In this video that is circulating on Facebook,  an Orange Lamborghini is seen to be driven dangerously on Raffles Ave, and is seen to be skidding across an intersection and cutting an SBS bus while doing a left turn. According to the timestamp in the footage, this took place on Saturday evening (8 May). Watch the video here:   While attempting the right turn, the sports car lost control, skidded, then bounced off the kerb before accelerating off.   Clearly, it looks like a wet day and the roads are slippery - We urge all drivers in these conditions to drive with extra care especially while turning at a junction. Later on, the Lamborghini driver made a dangerous, and illegal left turn, cutting an SBS bus at a traffic light intersection. This caused the bus to brake abruptly to avoid a collision with the italian sports car. Source: Google Maps Here's what netizens on Facebook have to say about the incident:

    BlueSG car uses instant torque to squeeze itself ahead on merging lanes

    A BlueSG car recklessly speeds up in a merging lane and forces the camcar driver (with his pregnant wife in the car) to swerve and prevent a collision. Like all electric vehicles, the Bollore Bluecar comes with instant torque which allows the vehicle to accelerate quicker than internal combustion engine (ICE) cars. You can clearly see the disparity in acceleration in the video. Let's look at some R&R (not rest and relaxation) But, at the end of the day, it doesn't matter how fast you can accelerate. There are rules and regulations that need to be adhered to. According to the Highway Code: In the case of this video, the camcar driver has the right of way as he was in front of the BlueSG car, which was on the yielding lane. Furthermore, there was no need for the BlueSG car to overtake the camcar as the road was not congested and there was no junction ahead.  However, there is the possibility that the BlueSG driver was rushing to save a few dollars due to the company’s rental plans. According to BlueSG, users are charged $0.36 per minute during their rental on top of a monthly fee, which explains why BlueSG drivers are typically seen rushing around all the time. Netizens' reactions Careless driving in Singapore racks up a fine of $200 and 6 demerit points. Just FYI.
