A 78-year-old cyclist passed away this morning after he was caught in an accident involving a tipper truck after the junction of Still Road towards Siglap, around 9am.

A spokesman for the police revealed that officers were alerted to the accident at 9.27am. The male cyclist was pronounced dead at the scene while the 64-year-old tipper truck driver was arrested for causing death by negligent act.

This is the second accident involving a tipper truck this week.

On Monday (31 Oct) afternoon, two tipper trucks collided with a lorry along Tanah Merah Coast Road towards Nicoll Drive. A police spokesman said, “Six persons were conscious when conveyed to Changi General Hospital (CGH).”
