SINGAPORE - An 82-year-old woman died after being struck by a motorcycle in Circuit Road on Thursday night (Sept 13).

The Singapore Civil Defence Force said it was alerted to the accident, which occurred near Block 47 Circuit Road at around 9.20pm.

Two ambulances were dispatched to the scene and the motorcyclist, a 26-year-old man, and the woman were both taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

However, the woman subsequently died from her injuries.
