The driver who was killed following a crash along Raffles Boulevard in the wee hours of Aug 10 has been identified as 29-year-old Mr Ng Phing Keen.

Stompers Jason and Trevor had earlier alerted Stomp to the incident, which occurred at around 2.30am outside Marina Square.

They saw a stone barrier lodged in the middle of the car bonnet, as well as Mr Ng trapped inside his vehicle.

Mr Ng is understood to have lost control of his Honda Civic, which skidded and crashed into the barrier.
