The taxi driver involved in a road accident with a red Ferrari and a motorcycle has died.
52-year-old Cheng Teck Hock died Sunday at 7pm at Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
The Straits Times said he was taken off life support after his heart stopped beating on Sunday evening. A local news source said Mr Cheng's condition had been unstable despite two surgeries. Mr Cheng's death is the third in this accident.
Mr Ma Chi, the 31-year-old driver of the red Ferrari, died at the scene. He was a private investor from Sichuan.
Mr Cheng's female passenger died Saturday morning at Singapore General Hospital.
Two persons survived the crash; Mr Ma's female passenger, and the motorcyclist, who suffered spinal injuries.
The accident had occurred in the wee hours of Saturday at the junction of Rochor Road and Victoria Street. It involved a red Ferrari driven by Mr Ma Chi, a taxi driven by Mr Cheng and a motorcycle. Two people were killed and three others were injured. Witnesses say that the Ferrari crashed into Mr Cheng's taxi when it ran a red light, causing the taxi to hit a passing motorcycle.
The impact was so hard that the taxi's engine was found 30m away from the vehicle, reported Shin Min Daily News.
Police and SCDF received calls about the accident at about 4.15am.
Drivers of both vehicles were trapped and had to be extricated by SCDF personnel.
