SINGAPORE — A fatal accident occurred on Thursday morning (25 May) at the junction of Victoria Street and Bras Basah Road, claiming the life of a 26-year-old motorcyclist.

According to the Chinese media outlet Lianhe Zaobao, the accident involved a motorcycle, a lorry and a bus. Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) and the police were alerted to the accident and rushed to the scene.

The SCDF paramedic pronounced the motorcyclist dead at the scene, while another person at the scene was assessed for minor injuries but declined to be taken to the hospital.

Due to the accident happening during the morning rush hour, the road experienced heavy traffic congestion, stretching all the way back to Hill Street.

An image shared on the Facebook group “Singapore Roads Accident” showed the badly damaged motorcycle lying in front of a lorry, with debris strewn on the ground.

The police have stated that a 31-year-old male lorry driver is assisting them with their investigations. The police investigations are still ongoing.

Mrs. Grace Wu, SBS Transit’s Vice-President for Customer Experience and Communications, responding on the incident, said: “At about 7.35am this morning, a Service 851 bus was travelling straight along Victoria Street with the green light in its favour when a motorcyclist suddenly rode out from Bras Basah Road and brushed past the front of our bus before continuing onto the adjoining lanes. We are sorry to hear about the passing of the motorcyclist and wish to extend our deepest condolences to his family.”

None of the passengers nor Bus Captain were injured.
