Second Case of Singaporean Killed in Overseas Accident This Month

This case follows shortly after the Taiwan Porsche case.

On 1 November, a Singaporean man was hit and killed by a Porsche car in Taiwan while crossing a road. The crash happened at such a high speed that the white Porsche SUV’s bonnet was severely dented.

The driver, Mr Xiang’s, breathalyser test showed that his blood alcohol level was at 0.58mg/l, which exceeds the legal limit of 0.15mg/l in Taiwan.

He claimed that the victim had suddenly “darted” in front of his car, and also blamed the accident on the dark and rainy road conditions as he wasn’t “driving fast”. However, this was Mr Xiang’s third drunk driving incident, after cases in 2014 and 2018.
