Police: PRC Ferrari driver Ma Chi (马驰) did not consume alcohol before accident
Posted by temasektimes on May 17, 2012
Ma was suspected of drink-driving and crashing his Ferrari into a Comfort Delgro taxi at a junction between Rochor Road and Victoria Street in the early hours of last Saturday morning, killing him on the spot.
The Singaporean cabby 52 year old Cheng Teck Hock and his Japanese passenger Shigemi Ito died later of their injuries in hospital.
The police claimed it ran blood tests on Ma Chi’s blood taken at the scene of the accident and confirm that it did not contain any substances which can cause him to become drunk.
The findings seem to contradict an earlier report by The New Paper claiming that Ma Chi reeked of alcohol when his body was extricated from his wrecked Ferrari.
Friends of Ma Chi had earlier told the media that Ma Chi was not a ‘heavy drinker’ and he preferred tea to alcoholic drinks.
Meanwhile, a key witness of the accident, the female passenger in Ma Chi’s Ferrari Miss Wu Weiwei (吴薇薇) is currently recuperating in Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
She just graduated from the East Institute of Management with a degree in ‘Hospitality’ and is reportedly working in a KTV lounge.
