SINGAPORE: The driver of a trailer was arrested Monday April 5 after his vehicle was involved in an accident along the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE).
This happened in the direction of East Coast Parkway (ECP), police said.
“The 39-year-old driver was subsequently arrested for driving a heavy motor vehicle over 4.5 m in height without an escort,” they added.
