A Chinese national was charged on Friday with causing the death of a pedal cyclist and injuring two riders along Loyang Avenue in August.

Wang Weiguan, 30, is accused of causing the death of bank employee Freddy Khoo Boon Hai, 48, by failing to keep a proper lookout when his lorry hit the back of the cyclist along the left lane at 6.52am on Aug 18.

He is said to have caused hurt to Mr Eugene Low Ju-sen, 37, and Mr Kevin Quek Weng Yew, 26, who were cycling with Mr Khoo by doing a negligent act to endanger life.

All three were flung off their bicycles. Mr Khoo, an avid triathlete who had taken part in several half-Ironman triathlon races, died later in hospital. The other two cyclists had minor injuries.
