Fatal accident involving BMW 3 series leaves 1 dead, 3 hospitalised



What happened?

A man was killed in an accident on Sunday, 2.05pm at the junction of Dunearn Road and Shelford Road near Tan Kah Kee MRT station. An SCDF paramedic pronounced the man dead at the scene.

The accident also involved 3 others. According to the SCDF, one person was taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, and two others were taken to KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital. 

The incident caused lane one of the road to be blocked with traffic cones and led to a traffic jam. 


A silver BMW 3 series is believed to be involved with the accident, as one was seen in front of a police tent on a grass patch next to the blocked off lane one. The car’s rear windscreen was broken and debris covered the side of the road. 


A driver who passed the site of the accident told The Straits Times that he saw a body lying by the driver’s side of the BMW, and a severed arm in lane three of the road. 

The driver went on to comment, “I was shocked. I feel sad for the victim.”

Security officer Syed Musa, 38, who was in his friend’s car, said they were stuck in the jam for about 30 minutes and went past the accident site at around 3.30pm.

When asked by The Straits Times he said, “My wife saw a man, (whom we) believed to be the driver of the car, standing near a tree and being attended to by the paramedics. He seemed to be in a state of shock.” 

We have no information on what led to the accident or the condition of the other 3 victims.

I saw the overhead bridge near to the scene of accident for pedestrian usage. Not sure the relationship between the victim and bridge when crossing the road.

  • My RC Crawler Journey: Part 1

    Have you ever found yourself mesmerised by overlanding and off-roading videos, just watching those lifted off-roaders conquering obstacle after obstacle, kicking up mud, driving through puddles, inching down steep slopes and climbing up steep gradients that seem impossible to scale? I sure did, but without the time, money and commitment to actually do it, I could only remain as a spectator behind my computer screen... This scale crawler had a ladder-frame chassis along with live-axles
