PHOTOS: Severed limb spotted along PIE after horrific accident

Posted by temasektimes on May 29, 2012

A severed limb was spotted lying on the road along the Pan Island Expressway after a horrific accident yesterday evening involving a motorcyclist and a bus.

Photos from Hardwarezone forum:

According to a Hardwarezone forumer ‘kediraksith’, the bus driver is a mainland Chinese:

“My friend just told me its his friend who is the victim, currently in ICU still not conscious … The bus driver who knocked him down… IS A ****ING TIONG DRIVER AGAIN!!!!”

For some strange reason, the accident was not reported in the mainstream media.

    May the victim get out of his ordeal soon. Stop bashing the foreigners. If Singaporeans were willing to take on the job of a bus driver, do you think the bus companies need to employ foreigners? We do not have the facts of this accident but as a driver everyday on Singapore roads, accidents involving motorcyclists are so common these days. It’s shocking. That they think that they zip in and zip out of lanes, as if the cars are all in constant speed. And they would ride in the middle of a lane and hold up other vehicles too.

      If bikes shouldn’t ride in the middle of the lane, where do u expect them to ride?

      • friedmarsbar said

        Driver: hahah seriously! if bikes shouldnt ride in the middle of the lane then what? at the side of the lane? OH I KNOW! on the road shoulder?? nyaahaha

      • Ranz Tan said

    • Anthony Tang said

      The trouble is that the employers prefer PRC because of lower pay. Driver is not fair in blaming all motor cyclist. I have been riding 53 years and not one single accident. Horn them if they are holding up traffic.
      Mainstream only reports whn the garment approves

    • KNN said

      the foreigners can accept S$1600 basic as it is alot when converted to RMB (1:5).
      Please stop blaming that locals dont want the jobs !

    • Leo said

      I agree partly. Singaporeans should not be too picky with jobs. But is it fair that the management draws so much money while the drivers’ pay is stagnant for many many years? They are good in transferring all the cost to consumers and not willing to receive lesser profit. In this bad times, is it fair for them to keep getting so much profit?

    • Absolute power corrupts! said

      SGs will take the job if they are paid fairly like in the 1st world country eg Norway divers are paid $5000+. We should not treated like slaves for the pap for their KPI/GPI and then pay themselves millions! We are 1st world, aren’t we? Or they and their elites live in swiss standards only.

      sorry to tell you this, but it is the true, i took this cab from my home to ICA. i chatted all the way. i was told by this cab driver that his friend did send in application to smrt to drive bus but his application was rejected by smrt! bty his friend got class 2 class 3 class 4 driving Licenses and was rejected by smrt. so tell smrt don’t bull shit. there is a few case i heard during taking cab and from my friend. true encounter!

      • CY said

        I think you are the one who should not be bull shitting. You did not provide details such as how much pay he asked for, his attitude.

      • Cindy said

        I agreed with Ken Lee, my hubby a true pure bred Singaporean. He apply twice but he was no grant any interview. They ask him to wait for call, after few weeks still no call. He saw the advertisment again and he apply again and still no reply. He was 45 years old. He has no choice but to go for taxi course and now he is driving taxi.

    • KC said

      My uncle is a Singaporean SMRT bus driver. Why not? Of course not, if the pay is stagnant! A lot of other jobs are the same! Stagnant pay, why? Cos after privatization, the objective is no longer to maximize consumers’ welfare, but more importantly to maximize shareholders’ profits! I’ve been traveling to China quite frequently, and I’d noticed the way the mainland drivers drive are machiam like no rule lidat. Double white line can anyhow cut, their honks like no need money lidat, reckless overtaking is like a norm, and people cross the road no need look out for cars, just cross blindly and somehow many manage to survive the notorious traffic condition. Hell, I would NEVER dare to drive in China (though I consider my driving skill relatively good)…. The point is, they come to Singapore, they should adopt our rule of the game and to prevent so, 2 ways: 1) reduce in take and 2) go through the painstaking process of resitting for the TP test. Allowing foreigners to convert their existing licence is simply fair, because of 2 reasons: 1) their existing licence could be obtained out of bribery 2) even if they really passed their homeland’s driving test, the standard could be very different, and the kind of traffic condition they’re accustomed to is very different too.

      you don’t want motorcyclist to ride in and out of lanes n cars, u don’t want them to ride in middle of the lane, then where u want them to ride? bicycle lane?

    • With eyes wide open said

      Driver, if GOVERNMENT quit fking citizens in the ass and making shareholders rich, and raise bus wages to real FIRST WORLD bus driver salary, perhaps a bus driver might really be able to survive and support his family!!! Daft! You’re single? No one else to feed?
      Or you send back 50% of your salary to your village in a faraway land where it enables your family to eat, build a house and send kids to school? Hello this is Singapore! The things are expensive!

      The only thing FIRST WORLD about this country: EXPENSES.

      Everything else is 3rd world. (Salary, manners, caring for society, etc)

    • Play Play said

      @Driver said – it is not Singaporeans are unwilling to take up such jobs. They are respectable jobs, just that SBS is unwilling to pay Singaporeans better to entice more of us. They rather take in cheap labour and continue to make profits at our expense. These drivers are not only rash by nature, they are also not well trained enough before being put on our roads. Singaporeans are squeezed out and the Govt is not helping.

    • anonymous said

      you dont want to stereotype the PRCs then dont stereotype the ones on bikes.

    • VERY LOCAL SINGAPOREAN said

      Hello driver, are you a Singaporean? You live in Singapore? You know how much they paying bus drivers? You know the wage difference between local and ah tiong? You ever hired ah tiong? Can you compete with ah tiong? They willing to take $500 less a month, you can tahan or not? They no need to pay bank loan for our HDB houses know! They eat 100 grams of rice with no meat everyday you can fight them or not? Afterall, they tahan 5 years can go back to their country and relax. Singaporeans leh? Everything keep going up. You can fight with ah tiong and at the same time tahan inflation or not? If you don’t know, don’t think, then don’t talk C***. Thank you vely march!

    • PRC Sucks said

      seriously, pls dun tok so much crap. if you really think our dear Singaporeans wouldnt want to make a decent living? just look at how pathetic the pay is for bus drivers (whom all both bus companies choose foreigner over Signaporeans). so Driver, why don’t you be on instead?

    • jj said

      Hello For Your INfo A bus Should Not Be In That Lane…Get Yr Facts Right…Dont Blame Foreigners …F**k u……Does the Driver Thinks He In In China….How SMRT GEt All This Drivers?….Did They Go For Courses…? Enough Of Taking Our Jobs Now Our Life… I Cant Wait For 2016 Election… I Vote For Change

    • Alex said

      It’s not Singaporean dun want do those jobs. Companies dun want pay decent pay people how to do. Foreigners can buy one bowl noodle in their country for s$1, in Singapore that amount cannot even buy u coca cola. And u expect Singaporean live with that kind of pay? If companies want cheap labor then they should go to cheap labor country set up their business fun come Singapore cos we are not cheap people ok!

  9. Lim Oo said

    why Singapore need only PRC bus driver it mean that our Singaporean and other races are not qualify.We Singaporean must hold Singapore Bus Company responsible. Why the main stream media not reporting this case.

    pray for the victim is safe and his leg is saved to be re-attached.

  11. Ron said

    Increase the bus driver salary to $2,500 per month and you will see many taxi drivers convert to buses. They drive in comfort, have periods of rest and get medical care, CPF and other benefits. Also then increase the bus fares by 50%. Singaporeans better not complain then.

    If you pay peanuts you get monkeys.

    • With eyes wide open said

      rubbish. Just stop making so much profit!!! WHO SAYS PROFITS MUST ALWAYS GO UP UP UP UP UP??
      When make money, never share with commuters, when problems arise, USE OUR TAX MONIES! WTF corruption is this?
      Win, I keept5. Lose, you pay? Simi lan?!!!
      In effect, citizens are just subsidizing their losses and pumping up their PROFITS. WHO BENEFITS????

      • Play Play said

        Very well said! The people up there are already making so much. They should help bear the cost of better service. High time, they employ more Singaporeans and pay us good wages. Send back the FTs. There were never so many fatal accidents involving buses before this scheme of using the FTs.

      companies want cheap labor then they should go to cheap labor country set up their business instead of setting up business here

    Halo FT , you guys stop coming & fuck off first . Then we will deal ourselves where to get the driver !! Pls don’t advise us !!

  13. Aristotle said

    Driver. Why don’t we have a law to insist that bikers must occupy an entire lane just like a car. Will you be happy?

  14. @ Driver; it is not a question of blaming, but fact remains that the ah-tiongs’ bad habits is an ingrained phenomemon in their driving culture. we say stop them from driving until they take all the necessary conversion tests, both practical and theory, and be subject to similarly stringent examinations by our traffic police before they be allowed to drive.

    • Mel said

      I wish and pray that the doctors could re-attached his leg.

      I think the FTs just need to take a conversion theory test if I am not wrong. I spent almost $3,000 to get my licence here 18 years ago after 4 attempts not to mention the many tedious hours of practical and theory lessons.

      High safety standards lah, first world standards lah…….BULLSHIT!

    Conversion of Foreign Driving Licence

    General Guidelines

    Any person holding a licence to drive a particular class of motor vehicle by the competent authority of a country other than Singapore, may apply for conversion to a Singapore driving licence to drive the equivalent class of motor vehicle. Licence that is granted automatically without the need of test but on the merit of attaining of another licence will not be converted, example a motorcycle licence granted with class 3 licence without going through a test is practised in countries like Myanmar and France.

    Singaporeans and Permanent Residents

    Singaporeans and Permanent Residents may only drive in Singapore with a Singapore licence. They have to seek conversion of their foreign driving licence upon returning to Singapore and upon obtaining PR status respectively.

    Singaporeans and Permanent Residents may convert a foreign driving licence if they can show proof that they have reason to be staying in a foreign country for a period of 1 year or more due to study or work, and have a total stay of 6 months within the one year period.

    New PRs who already have a 5-year Singapore driving licence will have to replace it with a lifetime driving licence that reflects their new NRIC number. Replacement of licence can be done at a fee of $25 at the Traffic Police Department at 10 Ubi Ave 3 S’pore 408865.

    The authorities should BAN all China drivers!! they shld not be allowed to drive at all!!! either that or make them go through REALLY RIGOROUS driving classes like what we locals have to go through, before giving them their license… not just allow them to convert their china license to drive here.

    According to Yahoo news “the motorcycle had collided into the rear of service 985” (http://sg.news.yahoo.com/motorist-s-leg-severed-in-pie-accident.html). In all likelihood the accident wasn’t the driver’s fault, whether local or foreign.

  23. Think Properly la! said

    people who say we should pay bus drivers at the same level as first world countries need to understand that that is not a viable proposal unless you raise the bus fares. a quick check of, for example, norway’s bus fares tell me that they pay on average 10 times the amount we do in singapore. so unless you are willing to pay that much for taking the bus, you’re never going to see the wages of bus drivers being raised.

    another example is something i’ve experience first-hand in australia. sure the people in australia who open restaurants, going to f&b etc. make quite a bit of money a month, but the average price per plate of food is like 10-15AUD which can work out to almost 20SGD. it’s common sense really, you want your wages to go up, be prepared to pay more for things. if you think things are expensive now, they will become even more expensive if minimum wage is implemented.

    as much as i don’t appreciate the ruling party’s antics, implementing minimum wage or creating a welfare state is not the way to go. in a capitalist market, meritocracy is arguably the fairest way to go about things. sure people will say that there will always be ‘white horse’ and rich kids who have an advantage, but education is the great equaliser. you can’t say children don’t have the chance to work their ass off in school, graduate from university at the top and get a great job. if bus drivers are going to earn as much as doctors/lawyers/accountants etc., who would want to study that hard then? in the end instead of importing foreigners to become bus drivers, you are importing foreigners to become lawyers, doctors etc. imagine that, you go to TTSH and all you see are prc doctors.

    a lot of university grads complain they aren’t able to find jobs when they graduate. tbh, most of them can find jobs, just that their expectations are too high. they are fed with the notion that when they enter and leave uni, they will be guaranteed a cushy job, which is often not the case unless you are the cream of the crop. these grads who are the average or worse in their cohort just have to suck it up and work harder to make it to where they want to be, instead of complaining. those who worked their asses off to finish top in school, rightfully will take their place ahead of the others when they graduate. that is after all the whole idea of meritocracy and capitalism no? or is something more akin to communism the preferred choice.

    what do you guys think?

      This is bullshit…stop saying having min wages things will get expensive…this is up to the government to correct things. If u do not know, S pass is the min wages for FTs. If the government doesn’t increase rental of land and electricity as when they like it, the inflation probably doesn’t even affect us that much, if the government conduct strict checks on the quota of local born and FTs in a company and set rules like fining the company if the headcounts doesn’t match, many jobless ppl will be off the streets. Its all up to the government. Many of the min wage countries are still good, i don’t see any reason not to implement the system. IF the government doesn’t open up its leg and welcome any tom dick harry, none of this will happened. Singapore was find before they came. There is Singaporeans doing every job, working hard, if not u think Singapore will be so prosperous? The government is the one that said Singaporean are lazy and picky to justify their reason for letting so many FTS here!!!!!!!!!!!! The government just have to stop those greedy employers from squeezing every ounce of juice we have.

      unfortunately, you are singing to a cow. even though you make complete sense, do you think people here will read, understand and come to the same conclusions as you? i’ll be frank, this is a website for ranting and for posters to indulge in racism.

      i don’t understand how the ‘ah tiong’ portion was included in the article. and that people here are more interested in spewing vulgarities at the ‘ah tiongs’. if my son/father/brother/uncle/nephew got killed in a traffic accident, knowing that the bus driver is from china wouldn’t make me more angry/sad. am i supposed to feel less angry/sad if the driver was from singapore?

      most people here are only having a cow at the expense of the ‘ah tiongs’ because they are safely hidden behind their computer screen and an anonymous online moniker.

      kinda sad and pathetic, but this is the average singaporean and i’ve come to terms with it.

      Good point. That is precisely why our good SMRT and SBS has been doing for the past years. Transferring all the costs to consumers. Always remember you are serving the public. Though it has been privatised, the main purpose is to provide transport for this small red dot.

      If the management keeps taking millions and millions while their staffs dunn get any increment or good bonus, do you think it is fair to them? Going to China to hire Chinese drivers to lower cost. Do they in the first place know the driving behaviours and rules of our roads.

      I am running my own business. If business is bad, I take lesser profit but I never compromise workers’ salary. This should be the way. If they are worried about making losses, they can by all means close the company.

    No one knows the nationalisty of the bus driver (assuming it is even a factor) ….
    You guys here are not exactly …. intelligent?

    • P. Charles said

      Are you intelligent enough to realize how come and why there is so much animosity these days? Wake up boy.

      • Bomb_17 said

        U should wake up…boy. Do you have the facts, did you see it yourself? or is just what u hear from people around u and become a follower unknowingly….Wasn’t that a Singaporean Lexus driver beating the red light n crash a taxi? Please wake up n stop discriminating!!

      • Bomb_17 said

        Animosity is created by people like you, WAKE UP!!

    I don’t mind a low pay, as long as things are cheap. The problem is, our pay is at cheap level, but our cost of living is approaching Swiss standards. We have Third World pay, but have to grapple with First World living standards. It’s tough for many of us.

    another chinaman. i’ve just about had enough of these ah tiongs and their antiques in our beautiful island nation. they’re destroying our peace, our families and our country!!!

  28. SBS has to stop conducting crash courses for these PRC drivers. Make them take and pass our stringent highway code and driving tests. SBS probably conducted an en masse recruitment in China and then shuffle them off to Singapore. Just cos they know how to drive does not mean they know our traffic laws. The many unfortunate and needless accidents is proof that the PRC drivers have not been well trained. Lets not blame the PRCs but the source of our nightmares — the SBS and its greedy board of directors whose only concern is maximising margins.

    Please naturalise these foreigners first before letting them in. When I when to study in the US, they made sure I understand American Thought and Culture, took my TOEFL and then take an American Enlish course in my first sememster, they even insisted I took a dialogue course to speak with an impeccable American accent. The course did me good. Close your eyes and you’d think you are listening to an angmoh. Make the PRCs drop their guttural mandarin (our govt seems to like people who can mutli-task like thePRCs who can gargle and talk and the same time; or people who can say yes and shake their heads or nod when they say no) and insist they say milo-peng, kopi-o, teh-c, roti prata, etc… Ordering jian ping kong or jian ping jia dan in Little India is just not the same,

    Anyway LTA shld makes all commercial vehicles drive on extremely left lane to avoid jam on highway.those vehicles speed limit only 60 to 70 ,so fast vehicles will never cut in and out,then can remain constant driving.

  30. Wreck said

    Okay I think why norway’s bus fare is so expensive is also because it’s a bigger country so the buses actually travel further.

  31. just curious said

    These people knows how to drive or not???
    Or kopi license…

  32. Steve said

    oh my, hope he recover, I am so sorry this happen, Singapore traffic police and LTA should redesign the expressway with motorcyclist lane on both of the left lane and right lane. And by law restrict the heavy vehicle only can use the extreme left lane.

    • speechless said

      there is unless ppl abide to the rules. even traffic light, ppl also chiong liao (gd example is the rochor accidents tat happen recently).

      It is impt tat ppl (esp FT) learn and practice our basic, standard and existing rules properly. they chiong traffic light at their country doesnt mean sg can also chiong…

      if not, come out 100 new rules but nobody follow also defeat the purposes as these new rules will just at most reduce accidents but is still not solving the root of the problems.

  33. Fred said

    What is the bus doing on the first lane????

  34. Temasek Review is racist and nazi said

    First thing first, the temasek review never posts the full detail of what happened, just posted photos to provoke the bashing of foreigners, what if the driver is Singaporean? Please lol, the motorcyclist is tailgating the bus and collided into bus, not the bus knocked him down, please be true to the news.

    • Jacob said

      What if the driver is Singaporean, but wasn’t! If their driving skills are inferior, can it be argued with?

      Your comment on the motorcyclist tailgating is defamatory and insensitive to his family!

      • ModSucksMyCock said

        It’s the same thing as what most of guys include the temasek review doing here too, frankly speaking, all the information provide by the temasek review is twisted, otherwise, someone’s grandma wouldn’t be questioned by the police during the re-election period, it’s the same thing as what our Singaporean done to the family of ferrari driver.

  35. I, personally, don’t think he has a leg to stand on. There, I said it. Sorry.

    today while driving along Keppel Road (infront of Tanjong Pagar Complex) during morning rush hr where traffic was heaviest and most dangerous, a huge cement truck just stopped on the road and the driver on his hazard lights and just left his vehicle , presumably to buy “breakfast” at the hawker stalls there! His idiotic selfish act caused a huge blockage of traffic esp at that busy stretch of road , more so bec his vehicle was a bloody cement truck. Guess what? as I drove past I saw that the driver was a bloody mainland chinese bloke!

  37. jack said

    its normal for them to hit someone in the road but not for us. watch this their kungfu driving style. the accident is same like ferarri style. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcsZxUDWCXg&feature=youtube_gdata_player

    The bus company should be blamed & hold accountable for employing such irresponsible & unqualified drivers from the PRC. We are always talking about productivity yet lots of employers are engagings such PRCs. There must be some wrong with the recruitment process.

  39. lsvop said

    wait wait. We don’t even know who is at fault. The bus or the motorcyclist who cause the accident. Lets not judge the tiong first.

  40. Take a look at how tiongs drive in China! Then u will realise why they drive so dangerously in Singapore.

    • ModSucksMyCock said

      Frankly speaking, from someone whom was inside the bus which involved in accidents, it’s not PRC driver, temasek review mod just anyhow wrote.

    my dad is a sbs bus driver and holds class 2-5 driving license. I work as a driver and currently holds class 2-5 driving license as well.. Well guys u all think about this
    Q1; why public bus drivers no need to wear seat belt?
    Q2: why public bus passengers are allowed to stand?
    Q3: why class 3 driving license allowed to drive a bus that can go as heavy as 12ton?
    Q4: why the bus service have to exit there even though the exit is on the extreme right?
    Q5: how long is their break at terminals and if they reach the terminal late, do they have a break?
    Q6: does sufficient training given to the drivers as most only hold class 3 driving license?

    I dun think all RIDERS are STOOOOOOPID to TAILGATE a BUS ryte????!!!!!

  43. Sylvester said

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
