SINGAPORE: A traffic accident involving two cars and a taxi occurred at the junction of Rochor Road and Victoria Street early Saturday morning.
That is the exact location where a Ferrari sports car crashed into a taxi and a motorcycle two weeks ago, killing three persons and injuring two others. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDI1G6W2iBw
This time, the taxi driver was fortunate as the Lexus collided into the back of his vehicle.
Police said they were alerted to the Saturday incident at 3.15 am.
A video recording showed a Lexus beating the red light at the junction and crashing into the rear of the taxi and another car at 3.15am.
The taxi passenger was sent to the Singapore General Hospital and treated as an outpatient.
The Singaporean driver of the Lexus has been arrested for suspected drink-driving and dangerous driving.
The 30-year-old man was found to have 42 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.
This exceeds the prescribed legal limit of 35 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath taken.
Police investigations are still ongoing.
If convicted of drink-driving, he will be disqualified from driving for at least a year.
First-time offenders can be fined between $1,000 and $5,000, or jailed up to six months. Repeat offenders face a fine of up to $30,000 and a maximum three years in jail.
They may also be given six strokes of the cane if the accident results in death or serious injury.
