An accident involving at least two vehicles happened on the BKE yesterday night (Jun 19) at around 10.15pm, causing one of the cars involved to catch fire, and leaving one man lying injured on the road. 

Stompers Grace, NoorWhirlzWindz, JT, Johanis and Pwlim sent in videos and photos of the accident to Stomp. 

The videos show one car engulfed in flames, with the fire spreading to another car.

One of the photos contributed by Stomper JT shows an injured man lying on a stretcher by the side of the expressway. 

It is unclear if the man was the driver of the car that was on fire. 

Other photos sent in show a grey car with its bonnet completely wrecked. 

SCDF and Traffic Police officers were on site, directing traffic and attempting to put the fire under control.

Grace, who was on an Uber ride and had passed by the scene at 10.18pm, told Stomp in a phone interview:

“The situation was quite scary.

“The fire was quite big and there were SCDF officers on the scene already trying to put out the fire.

“I didn’t hear any explosions though."

The police have responded to a Stomp query on the accident with an official statement:

“On Jun 19, 2017, at 10.04pm, the police were alerted to an accident involving four vehicles along BKE towards PIE before KJE flyover, resulting in a car catching fire.

“Three adults and one child were conscious when conveyed to National University Hospital (NUH) and Ng Teng Fong General Hospital separately.

“Police investigations are ongoing."

The SCDF have issued an official statement in response to Stomp's query:

"SCDF was alerted to a road traffic accident along BKE towards PIE at about 10.05pm.

"SCDF immediately dispatched one fire engine, one Red Rhino, two fire bikes and two ambulances to the scene.

"Compressed air foam were used to extinguish the fire.

"Two casualties were conveyed to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital and two casualties to NUH."
