A Singaporean man in his 50s was killed after he was knocked down by a Sentosa shuttle bus on Wednesday.

The accident occurred at about 5pm at a roundabout in front of Imbiah Station, an express rail station which is a stop away from the Resorts World Singapore integrated resort. There is an overhead bridge and pedestrian crossing within 100m of the accident scene.

The bus was driven by a man in his 30s who had started work in Sentosa three months ago, said a spokesman for the Sentosa Leisure Group, which operates the shuttle buses.

The bus driver is assisting the police with investigations. There were no passengers on the bus, which had been dispatched to pick up passengers at Siloso Point.
