A 27-year-old driver passed away after getting involved in a fatal traffic accident.

Here’s what happened.

Fatal Car Accident on Woodlands Road

On Friday (16 Dec), a fatal car accident occurred at 4:32 pm on Woodlands Road, heading towards Kranji Road.

The weather conditions weren’t great. With the rainy weather we’ve been experiencing for what seems like a monsoon season lasting forever, that day wasn’t any different.

It was pouring, and a silver car collided with a van in the rain.

The 27-year-old male driver of the car was sent to the hospital, where he was subsequently pronounced dead.

Fortunately, the 61-year-old female driving the van did not lose her life.

Front of Silver Car Was Completely Dented

The front of the silver car, driven by the deceased, appeared to be dented entirely, with the hood loose.

The airbags in front of the driver’s seat and passenger seats in the silver car were also deployed, giving us an idea of just how violent the impact was.

When the accident occurred, roads were slippery due to the rain.

Investigations into the accident are currently ongoing.

A String of Traffic Accidents in Recent Months

Our news sites have been plagued with news of traffic accidents recently.

We’ve heard everything: from the string of BlueSG “bumper car” accidents and the spate of overseas traffic accidents involving locals.

With the cold and wet weather here to stay, thanks to the Northeast Monsoon, roads will continue to be slippery, and driving conditions will be less than excellent.

Even in the rain, we hope all drivers take the necessary precautions to drive safely. You can turn on your headlights and check your tyres before going up the causeway for your JB trip.

Want to feel the wind in your hair on a motorbike in Phuket? Sure, but remember to drive safely as well.
