A man has made a police report after he posted a video of the Tampines accident on Facebook and was mistaken for the Mercedes-Benz driver in the video.

As a result, he was harassed and doxxed online, and has made a police report.

Two people were killed in the six-vehicle accident at the junction of Tampines Avenue 1 and Avenue 4 on April 22.

Facebook user Anthony Soon Han Tiong posted on April 23 at 2.23pm: "I would like to say that I was NOT in anyway involved in this accident and do not know the circumstances of it.

"The video was shared with me and I had the traffic police permission to share it with you."

He posted on Facebook again at 10.29pm to reiterate that he was not the Mercedes driver.

"Due to the false accusation and harassment on Facebook. I will seek your kind understanding not to share pictures of my kids and family member," added Mr Soon.

He also shared photos of the police report he made on the same day.

Mr Soon said in the police report that he works in a car workshop and on April 22, the owner of the Mercedes went there to report a hit-and-run accident and asked Mr Soon to post the dash cam video of the accident online on the owner's behalf.

The harassment started after Mr Soon shared the video and people thought he was the Mercedes driver.

He added: "The netizens shared my contact number and house address on Facebook and social media."

In response to a Stomp query, police confirmed that a report was lodged.

Someone claiming to be the driver of the Mercedes had earlier posted his side of the story on Reddit.
