Two cars overturned in two separate accidents yesterday.

In the first, a black car turned turtle near Fort Road on the East Coast Parkway (ECP) in the direction of Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE).

Two persons were injured, said the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). It dispatched an ambulance to the scene at around 9.30am.

Traffic was slow near the crash site.

Some motorists stopped to render aid to the injured persons and helped to guide traffic.

The pair were later taken to Raffles Hospital. In the second accident, a car flipped and eventually came to a stop against a lamp post on Seletar West Link (above) at about 4pm.

Madam Sulizah Sulaiman, who took a photograph of the scene while on her drive home from work, said several motorists stopped near the wrecked car.

The driver, a 34-year-old man, suffered minor injuries and refused to be taken to hospital, an SCDF spokesman told The New Paper.
