SINGAPORE - A three-car accident at Boon Lay Way on Friday was caused by a suspected drug trafficker who was trying to evade arrest.
A Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) spokesman told citizen journalism website Stomp on Friday that the man, aged 26, crashed his car into a CNB vehicle before hitting another car.
The statement said: "Earlier this evening, a 26-year-old suspected male drug trafficker who was trying to evade arrest, crashed his car into CNB officers' vehicle along Boon Lay Way, before hitting a member of public's car.
"Both the suspect and the family of four in that car were sent to the hospital for checks."
The spokesman added that the suspect was linked to a case on April 30 where 312g of heroin and three Erimin-5 tablets were found in a car. The man is now in CNB custody and will be investigated for drug trafficking.
A Stomper had told the website that she heard a loud thud from her flat and saw that a blue car had smashed into the road divider. The driver then opened the door and started running away.
She said that four men from another vehicle gave chase and managed to catch the man.
