Flowers, clothing and a photograph were placed at the scene of a horrific crash at Tanjong Pagar, as people paid their respects to the five men who were killed when their BMW crashed into a shophouse and burst into flames.
When reporters arrived at the scene at around 7.45am, an old photo of a little boy had been placed on top of a set of clothes and a pair of shoes at the charred entrance of the shop.
The photo, believed to be that of one of the victims, was later removed.
Flowers, lit candles and condolence notes were among the items placed at the side and front of the shop.
The accident on the second day of the Chinese New Year on Saturday killed all five men in the car. The police said it was the highest number of people killed in a single traffic accident in the past decade.
Six workers arrived to set up road safety cones at 8.28am.
One of them, a man who wanted to be known as Harun, 38, said that he had been instructed to board up the place.
A woman, who said she was a family member, entered the shop at around 10.30am.
She removed the photo, and also the clothes and shoes that the photo was placed on.
Another young man, who said he was a friend of the deceased, arrived at around 11.55am with a bouquet of flowers.
Of the five who died, four were financial advisers. They are: Jonathan Long and Eugene Yap, both 29, Elvin Tan Yong Hao, 28, as well as Teo Qi Xiang, 26.
The four were in a BMW M4 coupe with Gary Wong Hong Chieh, 29, when the car slammed into the front of a vacant shophouse and burst into flames at about 5.40am.
Long was the driver of the BMW.
His girlfriend, Raybe Oh Siew Huey, 26, suffered severe burns after trying to save the men.
As at yesterday afternoon, Oh was still in critical condition at the intensive care unit, said a Singapore General Hospital spokesman. The Straits Times/ANN
