A 31-year-old man was arrested on Thursday (15 February) following an accident involving a prime mover along Jurong Town Hall Road in the direction of the Ayer Rajah Expressway.

According to a police news release, the man is due to be charged with murder on Saturday.

The suspect was one of a group of three men – aged 18 to 43 – involved in the accident, which the police said they were alerted to at 5.47pm. All three were subsequently conveyed to the National University Hospital (NUH).
