A man driving a Toyota Vios towards Tuas was killed yesterday (19 Dec) when a silver Mercedes-Benz which was allegedly travelling against the traffic flow came crashing into his. The driver of the Toyota had to be extricated by officers from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) and was pronounced dead at scene by paramedics.

The accident happened early Monday morning and a 53-year-old man (believed to be the driver of the silver Mercedes-Benz which caused the accident) was 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.

Netizens have flagged a Facebook user who made several insensitive comments about the fatal accident. The user Ivan Gan said: “I think Mercedes is safer. At least kill other driver, I am safe inside. Good killing machine. Just pay few K fine and free again.”

In another comment he said: “We Mercedes driver has right to drive in any direction we prefer. Other driver must give way to us Merc driver. “Other driver just go back suck thumb inside your piece of junk. Haha.”
1Netizens who reacted in disbelief at the comments of Ivan Gan have CSIed further information about him (for non Singapore English speakers, CSI means crowdsourced effort to stalk and dig up things about people online for the purposes of public shaming).

Following the outpouring of outrage against his insensitive comments, the netizen who made if has deactivated his Facebook page.
