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.
