A national serviceman is in critical condition after suffering serious head injuries following an accident during the OCBC Cycle Singapore on Sunday.

Mr Chia Wee Kiat, 24, was involved in a crash on Benjamin Sheares Bridge soon after the 5.15am start of the 59km Super Challenge which he was participating in.

It is unclear how Mr Chia was hurt. But event organisers have said on their Facebook page that they are currently contacting witnesses, as well as the Land Transport Authority, to obtain more information of the accident.

Organisers said that they were notified of the accident at approximately 5.39am and a fast response motorbike paramedic attended to Mr Chia within six minutes. He was then sent to Singapore General Hospital by an ambulance and arrived there at 6.14am.
