Eyewitness Melvin Lau who was driving a few cars behind the car that overturned told reporters:

“The car was going too fast when navigating the corner. After it crashed, the cars behind came to a standstill before trying to maneuvre past it.” 

The driver, who has sustained abrasion wounds, is believed to be the only commuter in the vehicle.



  1. I’ve seen some idiots driving so fast that even birds get run over.
    This one idiot driver is definitely speeding, don’t has to investigate further waste of public resources.
