Stomper Mark witnessed a BMW driver crash into the back of a garbage truck while driving along the Kranji Expressway (KJE) yesterday (Feb 12) at 11.30am.

Mark said the accident occurred in the direction towards Choa Chu Kang.

He recounted what happened:

"The BMW driver was driving very fast and somehow did not see the truck right in front of him.

"I hope he is fine."

In the video Mark shared with Stomp, the truck was travelling in the middle lane at a steady pace.

There was no sudden lane-changing or braking involved so it is unclear how the BMW driver did not see the truck in front of him.

A police spokesperson provided Stomp with the following lines:

"On Feb 12, 2017 at 12.19pm, the police were alerted to an accident involving a lorry and a car along the KJE towards BKE.

"The 24-year-old car driver was conscious when he was conveyed to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.

"Police investigations are ongoing."
