A Chinese male in his 40s was sent to hospital, following an accident involving a car and a trailer truck along the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) towards Tuas on Apr 19, at about 3pm.

Stompers Anthony, Faizal, Henry, Wong and Ivan contributed photos showing the collision scene and damage.

In the images, the left half of the car can be seen wedged under the trailer truck, while its right half was mounted against a ledge by the tunnel's wall.

According to Wong, the wreck was still there when he passed by the location at around 5.45pm.

A video from Anthony shows the car having been removed from its awkward position, with both its front and rear bumpers wrecked.

In response to media queries by Stomp, a spokesperson for the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said that a male Chinese in his 40s was conveyed to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.

One fire engine, one Red Rhino, one ambulance and one support vehicle were dispatched.
