The driver of a Mercedes Benz died in a vehicular accident yesterday, July 4, at the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE).

A video of the incident posted online showed how a silver Mercedes Benz veered very quickly to the left on the BKE, collided with a Mitsubishi Lancer, turned over, only to land on its side.

The driver of the Mercedes Benz, a 46-year-old male, apparently suffered a heart attack while driving, and was unconscious when taken out of the car. The video also shows a man performing CPR on the victim at the scene of the accident. He was taken, still unconscious, to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

The driver of the Mitsubishi Lancer was unharmed.
