A 43-year-old driver died on Tuesday after he was pinned under his lorry in Tuas in an accident involving his vehicle and a car.

The accident occurred at the junction of Benoi Road and Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim, the police said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene by a Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) paramedic. He had to be freed from under the lorry with rescue equipment, SCDF said.

The police were alerted to the accident at about 8.25am.

A video circulating on Telegram shows a damaged car in the middle of the road junction in the aftermath of the accident.

Near a traffic light, a lorry can be seen tipped over on its left side, blocking a two-lane road.

At least two ambulances and three other SCDF vehicles are seen in the video.

A 52-year-old male car driver was conscious when taken to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.

The police are investigating.
