A video capturing the aftermath of a road accident involving a Mercedes-Benz is being widely shared online after it was uploaded on social media about two hours ago by Facebook user, KP Lau.

While several netizens are sharing the video under the impression that the incident captured in the video occurred recently, it appears that the accident actually occurred on 7 December last year – more than three months ago.

In the video that was posted this evening, several pedestrians can be seen bleeding on the ground as a Mercedes-Benz is parked, with extensive damage in its windshield. Bystanders gather to support the suffering victims who are badly hurt:

This video seems to be footage from an accident that occurred last December, that is just captured from another angle than videos that were released when the accident occurred. Here are some other videos from the December accident:

Photos of the accident site also look identical to the scene captured in the new video that has been making rounds online.

The accident occurred on 7 Dec 2017 around 6.30pm when a Mercedes-Benz mounted a divider in Tanjong Pagar Road, hit a lorry on the other side, and ploughed into four pedestrians who were standing at a traffic island, waiting to cross the road.

Three Singaporeans and one Australian were injured in the accident, which occurred just outside the Amara Hotel.

41-year-old Lim Kwong Fei, who was driving the Mercedes-Benz, was said to be under the influence of alcohol and was charged with drink driving in court. Lim, who was an insurance agent at Great Eastern Life Insurance, was let go after the accident despite being one of the company’s top achievers.
