Barely two weeks after the Ferrari-taxi crash that killed three people, another high-speed crash has taken place at exactly the same site at the Rochor/Bugis area.
According to Shin Min News Daily, the accident occurred at 3:16am on Saturday morning, when a Lexus ran the red light and hit a Comfort Delgro taxi.
The Lexus subsequently hit two more cars before coming to a stop. This time, there were no fatalities.
According to Lianhe Wanbao, the 30-year-old Chinese male driver of the Lexus was arrested on the spot for drunk driving.
Shin Min reported that the taxi driver was unharmed but his 30-year-old male passenger was sent to the hospital for treatment and has since been discharged.
The accident was caught on tape by another taxi driver who was just seconds behind the first taxi. In the video that is eerily similar to the Ferrari crash, the Lexus is shown hitting the rear of the taxi at high speed, sending the taxi into a tailspin.
