Today reported that the 37-year-old man who died in the horrific death in AYE is a television personality Jackie Liong. The newspaper was able to do this by talking to his wife who is in hospital receiving treatment for her injuries. The wife was a passenger in the car driver by Mr Liong and was among the four conveyed to NUH after the horrific accident.

Mrs Liong appealed to Today saying, “I am in hospital. I think I am not in the position to talk so much … I am being attended to for my injuries.”

The paper also released pictures of the dead man despite the Traffic Police appealing to the public not to circulate photos or videos of the deceased out of respect for his family.

Jackie Liong was driving in a Toyota Vios towards Tuas when a silver Mercedez-Benz which was allegedly travelling against the traffic flow came crashing into his. He was killed on the spot and had to be extricated by officers from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). He was pronounced dead at scene by paramedics.

The accident happened at about 8.05am today (19 Dec) and a 53-year-old man has been arrested for causing death by a rash act. The silver Mercedes-Benz also caused a multi-vehicle collision involving four cars, a motorcycle and a bus. A video shared by Facebook user Patrick Tan showed the Mercedes being driven at high speed before the collisions happened.
