Teen, 19, dies in Pioneer Road crash

Passersby knew something was wrong when they saw white cloth draped over a motorcycle this morning.

The bike, still standing upright, seemed to have collided with a trailer.

A heavy machine operator who wanted to be known only as Mr Tan, 70, told Shin Min Daily News that he saw the accident unfold outside his Pioneer Road office. 

He said the motorcyclist slumped to the side, then remained motionless. The man's helmet, glasses and slippers fell off.

A police spokesman said they received a call at about 8.15am, alerting them about an accident involving a trailer and motorbike along Pioneer Road towards Tuas West Drive.

Paramedics pronounced the 19-year-old motorcyclist dead at the scene.

Investigations are ongoing.
