The fatal accident in Bugis yesterday morning was caused by a PRC Ferrari driver who was speeding at that time to beat the red lights!
The accident occurred at the junction of Rochor Road and Victoria Street and involved a taxi, a car and a motorcycle.
The driver of the Ferrari and the taxi driver were both trapped in their vehicles and had to be extricated by SCDF personnel after which he was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
The taxi’s female passenger, a Singaporean in her 20s, who was unconscious after the accident, died in hospital while three others sustained serious injuries.
According to eye-witnesses, the red Ferrari was speeding to beat the red lights and somehow knocked into the taxi and motorcycle. The PRC driver reeked of alcohol when his body was evacuated from his wrecked vehicle.
The name of the PRC driver is Ma Chi and he came from Sichuan province a few years ago. He is currently in his early 30s and works in the finance industry. The tabloids reported that he is worth a few million dollars and lives in a posh condominium in the eastern part of Singapore.
His pregnant wife fainted when she recognized his body at the mortuary. Ma was with another PRC woman in his Ferrari. It is not known what he is doing with her at such a late hour.
Though Ma Chi caused the accident, the pro-PRC Chinese tabloids have been heaping generous praises of him glamorizing him as a ‘successful and handsome young man’ while there is no mention of the deceased Singapore woman and her family as if they do not exist.
