The victim of the horrific AYE crash this morning has been identified as Jackie Liong Kuo Hwa, 37, a TV personality who had appeared in local series such as Code of Law and Point of Entry. In more recent times, Mr Liong has appeared in TV commercials such as the “DBS: What Is Your Big Plan”.
Mr Liong was driving a black Toyota Vios when a silver Mercedes driving against the traffic flow rammed into him straight on. He was pronounced dead at the scene and had to be extricated from the driver’s seat by personnel from the Singapore Civil Defence Force.
Mr Liong was travelling with his wife, who is being treated at NUH Hospital. She said, “I am in hospital. I think I am not in the position to talk so much … I am being attended to for my injuries.”
