“We are sorry that this has happened. The bus was travelling straight and about to make a right turn at the traffic junction which was green in its favour when the accident occurred,” said SBS Transit’s senior vice-president of corporate communications Tammy Tan in a straitstimes.com report.

“We are trying to get in touch with the cyclist’s next-of-kin to extend our deepest condolences and offer our assistance,” she said.
