The man who was killed in Friday morning's accident on the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE), was a construction worker from India.
The 29-year-old was seated at the back of the lorry with his fellow workers when a car apparently rear-ended the larger vehicle at high-speed, causing it to tilt over, said an eyewitness.
The remaining ten men on the lorry - including its 52-year-old driver were injured, and taken by Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) ambulances to Changi General Hospital.
The female driver of the car was also hurt and admitted for treatment.
