A taxi driver has died a day after a freak accident which caused his head to be trapped by his car door last Tuesday at the Premier Taxi headquarters at Changi South Avenue 2, in Singapore.

The driver is thought to have stepped on the accelerator accidentally while attempting to insert his cash card into a reader, Shin Min Daily News reported.

His car door was open, and as the car lurched forward, his head was trapped between the car door and car body.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force said that they were alerted to the rescue incident at around 7.50pm and the 59-year-old driver was freed and taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital where he died the following Wednesday.

His wife, 57, said that she was waiting for her husband to come home for dinner when she received a call informing her of the accident.

When she rushed to the hospital, he was already brain dead, she told Shin Min.

He was in good health, and they were planning to celebrate his 60th birthday on June 18, she said.
