Car burst into flames after accident on Adam Road

SINGAPORE - A car caught fire after it was involved in an accident at Adam Road on Thursday afternoon.

A Straits Times reader took a picture of the vehicle's blackened shell.

When contacted, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said the accident happened at around 3.10pm at the junction of Adam Road and Chee Hoon Avenue.

One car caught fire after it was involved in an accident with another car, SCDF said. Firefighters extinguished the flames with one water jet, and oil spillage cleanup was carried out at the area.

A man in his 40s was admitted to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

"Obstacle on Adam Road (towards Queensway) after PIE. Avoid left lane," the Land Transport Authority tweeted at 5.08pm.

Pictures taken by the reader at around 4pm on Thursday showed a car with a crumpled hood which was half buried in shrubs on a road divider, and the burnt shell of another car which had ended up on the sidewalk.

The reader, who did not want to be named, said that all traffic in the area was diverted to the flyover.
