2 POLICE OFFICERS HURT IN ACCIDENT INVOLVING CAR THAT SPED OFF FROM ROAD BLOCK

Just a day after a traffic police officer tragically lost his life in an accident while on duty, another two police officers were taken to hospital after an accident following a car chase with a vehicle that evaded a road block. The accident happened in the early hours of Friday morning.

The man driving the car, a 43 year old man whose name was not released by the police, was stopped at a road block along Mackenzie Road, but he had refused to comply with a police officer's instructions. He subsequently sped off and in the ensuing pursuit, the police car and the man's car was involved in an accident at Normanton Road. This resulted in the police car smashed into a flight of stairs. Two officers were taken to NUH, but it is understood that their injuries are minor.

This ensures that residents staying on Langsat Road, Everitt Road, Lorong 102 - 108 Changi are able to turn right onto Langsat Road to get home after being checked by the Traffic Police.

POLICE ARREST PASSENGER AFTER CAR EVADES ROAD BLOCK, BUT NOT DRIVER

Police have arrested a car passenger this early this morning for drug-related offences. The arrest came as the car the man was in evaded a police road block along Kallang Way. However, the car driver was not arrested.

How strange. Pretty sure the driver was the one who evaded the road block, not the passenger. Arrest the passenger for drug offences, no question, but driver let free? Unless he was forced to evade the road block by the passenger, then he should be arrested too, right?

DID THE POLICE USE EXCESSIVE FORCE IN SHANGRI-LA ROAD BLOCK SHOOTING?

By opening fire, they killed 1 person and detained another 2. If it was a road block, why did the police still have to use deadly force on the car occupants? Isn't there a standard procedure of chasing the car or boxing in the vehicle? Or at most, why don't the police shoot the tyres to immobilise the vehicle? Or shouldn't there be road spikes on the ready to stop any such vehicles?
