SINGAPORE: Two Malaysian security officers are severely injured after their Johor Baru-bound motorcycle crashed into the back of a stalled car on the Seletar Expressway Monday morning.

According to the Singapore Straits Times, Danny Raj Muniappan, 24, and Trivikram RL, 21, who both work for Certis Cisco, were heading back across the Causeway where they rented a home together, after they finished their night shift at Changi Airport on Monday.

However, before the duo could reach Woodlands Checkpoint, their bike barrelled into the back of a stalled car on the Seletar Expressway before the Lentor Avenue exit at around 10.30am. Muniappan was riding the bike while Trivikram was riding pillion.

The English daily reported that graphic videos online show them crashing into the back of the car. The motorcyclist slams into the open boot of the car, which had its hazard lights on, while the pillion rider somersaults into the air and lands several metres away.

Both were taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital with severe injuries, Muniappan has a ruptured bladder, fractured pelvic bone and lost a lot of blood. He also broke his left arm and left leg, and has been unconscious since the accident.

Meanwhile, Trivikram also suffered a fractured pelvic bone and a broken leg and has been drifting in and out of consciousness and has not been able to speak. Both are still warded in the intensive care unit.

Straits Times reported that their employer, Certis Cisco, said it will extend help to the men and their families. Senior vice-president and head of Certis Cisco aviation security Benny Lim said: “Some of our staff have visited them at the hospital and will keep in close contact with them.”

The Straits Times understands that the car involved broke down shortly before the accident.

Police investigations are ongoing.
