A 59-year-old man was conveyed to the hospital while unconscious. He later died from injuries.

Four other men, aged between 22 and 38, were conscious and taken to the hospital, reports noted.

The 33-year-old Mercedes driver was arrested for dangerous driving causing death.

“SCDF took some time to extricate the driver from the white car bearing the brunt of the high impact onto the driver’s side,” said ROADS.sg.

On Saturday (Jan 1), the page posted an update from a friend of one of the victims.

“Hey guys, I’m sure most of you have seen or heard about the freak accident along Tampines,” the friend wrote.

He shared that the motorcyclist, Mahmud Azmani Fikri, was a close friend and was on his way over when he got into the accident.

“I am posting this to update that alhamdulillah he is alive and recovering as I’ve read many speculations or assumptions that he did not make it.”

The concerned friend also asked members of the public to keep Mr Mahmud in their prayers as he tries to move on from this “life-changing misfortune.”

“I would also want to remind everyone to constantly update your family and friends about your whereabouts, especially if you are driving or riding,” he said.

Mr Mahmud’s friend also advised road users to get a smartwatch with fall detection to alert loved ones in case of an accident./TISG
