SINGAPORE - A 40-year-old motorcyclist was killed in an accident involving a car and another motorcycle on the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) on Saturday (Dec 1).

The police were alerted to the accident, which took place on the BKE towards Woodlands Checkpoint, after the Woodlands Avenue 3 exit, at 1.45pm.
