A motorcyclist died after allegedly being hit by a holiday coach and dragged for five metres across the road. He is believed to be a Malaysian in his 40s.
The tragedy occurred on Tuesday morning at the junction of Jurong East Street 11 and Jurong Town Hall Road. According to an eyewitness, the holiday coach driver had been attempting to filter from the second lane to the first lane along Jurong Town Hall Road, when he lost control of his vehicle and collided with a motorcycle.
The rider and his vehicle were then dragged across the road for about five metres.
The eyewitness added that the coach continued moving forward after that and crashed into a mini-bus and a car. It also struck the road divider, toppled a traffic light and hit a taxi, before finally coming to a halt.
The police spokesman said the motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene, and the coach driver has been arrested. Investigations are ongoing.
