'Accident' at Bukit Batok West turns out to be drug bust by CNB

What looked like an accident scene at Bukit Batok West on July 2 turned out to be a drug bust by the Central Narcotics Bureau.

A CNB spokesperson clarified that a video of the incident showed officers stopping a 26-year-old drug trafficker had attempted to evade arrest by driving away

The clip, which was posted by channel on YouTube, shows the drivers of two cars yelling instructions to the driver of the car stuck in the middle.

Soon after, a driver of a fourth car and a biker are seen running to scene. A fifth driver then joins the scene. The men started to climb onto the cars to try and pull the driver seated in the car trapped in the middle.

A sixth driver then arrives and stops his car in front of traffic. He comes out of his vehicle to render assistance as well.

According to the CNB spokesperson, the drug trafficker had crashed through a public gantry in his attempt to escape, and the clip apparently shows what happened

Here is the CNB statement which sheds light on the incident:
