A Singaporean Registered Mercedes A45 loses control at a high speed and crashes into five vehicles in Johor Bahru

Here I am writing two back-to-back articles on accidents involving reckless Singapore-registered vehicles in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. 

This time, it involves a hotter hatch than the Volkswagen Golf GTI (Read it here) - the Mercedes A45 AMG.

Watch the video of the accident here:

What Happened?

The following accident occurred in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, in the early hours of 8th May, Sunday.

A Mercedes A45 was gunning down the road of Jalan Johor Bahru - Kota Tinggi (Jalan Serampang Intersection) at high speed.

Somehow or rather, the Mercedes driver lost control of his hot hatch and skidded.

As a result, it slams into a total of five vehicles (including the cam car) before coming to a stop in the middle of the road. 

Among the five vehicles, four were waiting at a red-light in the opposite direction where the Mercedes driver came from. 

According to Johor Bahru Selatan District Police Headquarters, the Mercedes driver was tested negative for driving under the influence of alcohol and substance. 

Also, Johor Bahru Selatan District Police Headquarters have since launched an official investigation into this accident under section 43 (1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.

Thank goodness those involved managed to escape with only minor injuries. 

Here's wishing all those involved in the accident a speedy recovery!

P.S. I am guessing the Mercedes driver's insurance company ain't gonna be happy about this!

The involvement of numerous parties and foreign-registered vehicle(s) seems like this will make this accident claim a troublesome one.

Aftermath of the Accident

Below are some snippets of the accident scene.

The Mercedes A45 seems like it was damaged the most during the accident compared to the other vehicles - the hot hatch looks like a complete wreck! 

Do you think the A45 is salvageable? Or would it be heading for the scrapyard back in Singapore?

It seems that the Mercedes A45 driver was hell-bent on speeding through the junction and trying to beat the red traffic light. 😕

it is unfortunate. The Merc driver should get seriously injured, so he won't endanger others life again in the future.

As for the watermark, maybe can ask the graphic designer/ webmaster to reduce the opacity :grin:

  • Car sharing Getgo vehicle blatantly ignored the red light and hit a taxi

    A common car-sharing Getgo vehicle gets caught on camera blatantly ignoring the existence of the red traffic light. Strange since this seems like the fundamental essentials of driving theory.  This resulted in the vehicle side sweeping an oncoming taxi and, hitting into it and resulted in debris inconveniently left on the road.  It's extremely fortunate that this blatant disregard for traffic rules did not result in a more severe and damaging accident. It might be wise for Getgo to con

    BlueSG driver fails to keep in lane while making a turn and hits cam car. Gets branded as a 'nbcb'

A cam car driver on lane 2 negotiated a right turn together with a Bluesg driver travelling on lane 1. As both cars were about to complete the turn,

    $800,000 Mercedes G63 gets chased by a Volkwagen van, rear-ends a stationary Honda Vezel at a red light

    It is not every day you get to see the legendary Mercedes G63 in Singapore.  And it is even rarer to see one involved in an accident.  Watch it here:  What Happened? A Mercedes G63 and a Volkswagen Transporter 'chiong-ed' along Yishun Ave 8 upon the red traffic light signal turning green.  Its 4.0-Litre Bi-Turbocharged V8 engine and all-wheel-drive drivetrain instantly picked up speed.  Directly behind the G-wagon was the Volkswagen Transporter.  Alth
