Mr Kelvin Seo , a 29-year-old accounts manager at MyRepublic, was injured in an apparent hit-and-run accident involving his Kymco motorcycle and a car on the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) towards Woodlands on Wednesday night.

A witness, Mr Asrin Abas, said: "I saw him fall like a crash dummy, rolling and making several turns before landing two lanes away. Thankfully, the vehicles behind were not speeding, otherwise Mr Seo might have lost his life. He is very lucky."

Another witness said the car drove off after the accident. The police said investigations are ongoing and they have yet to confirm if it was a hit-and-run accident.

Man jailed 12 years for fatally stabbing former prison mate in coffee shop brawl

Jamsari Yusof

When he saw a man he knew in prison drinking in a Geylang coffee shop, he accused the man of being a "hantu". (Malay for ghoset but is also prison slang for someone who's untrustworthy and an informer)
