The lorry driver who crashed into 11 vehicles on the Johor Causeway on Thursday, 7 July, had 33 previous summonses for various traffic offences.

The 34-year-old man also had six outstanding summonses and tested negative for drugs in a urine test.

The Star reported that the lorry driver had been remanded for three days. The remand order was issued by assistant registrar Melody Woon Sze Mun at the Magistrate’s Court.

On Thursday, a viral clip showed a lorry ploughing into a line of vehicles on the busy Causeway.

The mechanical fault, which was believed to have led to brake failure, caused the lorry to continue crashing into the vehicles before slowly coming to a stop.

The road mishap damaged nine cars, one van and a bus. It also caused two out of three lanes on the Causeway to be blocked.

Singapore’s Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) reported that the blocked lanes were cleared three hours later.

Fortunately, no lives were lost and no injuries were reported. The vehicles involved reportedly suffered minor damages.
