A 24-year-old Singaporean law student is believed to have died in a horror car crash in Warwickshire, England, last Wednesday morning.
According to British newspaper The Stratford Herald, a green Mini One car had flipped over near the Longbridge roundabout on the M40 motorway on Wednesday around 2 am.
The impact flung the Mini into a field nearby where it then burst into flames.
Emergency services responded to the scene but an ambulance spokesman is reported as saying that “unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save the person who was in the car” and that he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Straits Times reported that Yap is believed to have been in the car when the incident occurred, and that while the accident victim’s identity has yet to be confirmed, Yap’s parents left for Britain on Thursday.
Yap’s public page on social networking site Facebook shows that he had graduated from an Oxford college in the United Kingdom last year. He is listed as having a 21-year-old sister who is studying hotel administration in Singapore.
