Man unconscious after serious accident

Posted by jtsmyth8 on November 8, 2007

The mini-bus struck his car from behind. That threw his vehicle into the path of a tipper truck which rammed into his car from the left. Mr Gerd Rossow, 48, a German marine engineer, who had been turning into Raffles Marina in Tuas, sustained serious head injuries and is still unconscious in the National University Hospital’s intensive care unit.

He was heading there after work at about 5.45pm on Wednesday to meet some colleagues for a drink.

The accident took place along Tuas West Drive, towards Tuas South Avenue 3.

A colleague who saw the car called the company. Mr Rossow’s wife, Martha, 30, a housewife, was informed.

At the hospital on Thursday with two other friends there lending her their support, she told The Straits Times: ‘The doctors told me that the brain was not responding at first.’
