The family member of one of the victims from a serious accident at Woodlands involving 2 lorries and 2 family cars has stepped forward to tell what happened.
According to the netizen, the driver of lorry YM9217T, which was ferrying a group of foreign workers to their destination, crashed into 3 of her friends' vehicles, 2 cars and 1 lorry.
All 3 of the vehicles were stationary by the road side, with some of her friends sitting by the edge of the stationary lorry and chatting. They had just finished their Sahur at Al-Ameen, Woodlands.
The crash injured 6 of her friends, including 2 young children and 4 adults.
